Definitive handmade limited run reissue of Jimi Hendrix Axis: Bold As Love
Purest possible pressing and most visually stunning presentation and packaging!
Analogue Productions, together with Quality Record Pressings, is reintroducing one of the most revered brands in LP history the Ultra High Quality Record (UHQR), originally introduced by JVC Japan in the 1980s!
Analogue Productions presents its first UHQR title Jimi Hendrix's 1967 masterpiece, Axis: Bold As Love, in both stereo and mono versions. This UHQR is newly remastered by noted mastering engineer Bernie Grundman from the original analog master tapes. Each UHQR will be pressed at the industry-leading pressing plant Quality Record Pressings (QRP) using hand-selected Clarity Vinyl® on a manual Finebilt press with attention paid to every single detail of every single record. The 200-gram records feature the same flat profile that helped to make the original UHQR so desirable. From the lead-in groove to the run-out groove, there is no pitch to the profile, allowing the customer's stylus to play truly perpendicular to the grooves from edge to center. Clarity Vinyl® allows for the purest possible pressing and the most visually stunning presentation. Every UHQR is hand inspected upon pressing completion, and only the truly flawless will be allowed to go to market. Each UHQR is packaged in a deluxe box and includes a booklet detailing the entire process of making a UHQR along with a hand-signed certificate of inspection. This is a truly deluxe, collectible product.
Each Axis UHQR is available as two versions: mono and stereo. The stereo release is limited to 5,000 copies, while the mono release is limited to 1,500 copies. The deluxe box is gold foil numbered.
Axis: Bold As Love, the sensational sophomore release of the Jimi Hendrix Experience, showcased Hendrix's expansive experimentation while acknowledging his early R&B and soul music influences. The album features classics such as "Spanish Castle Magic," "Little Wing," "Castles Made Of Sand," and "If 6 Was 9."
As Rolling Stone states, Jimi Hendrix was the most innovative instrumental genius the rock era produced, a wizard guitar player whose sense of technique never overwhelmed the blues and rock 'n' roll spirit that was the underpinning of his genius. He improvised with the fervor of a born jazzman; he philosophized like the most cosmic rocker, but ultimately his basics were rooted in soul, a reflection of the chitlin circuit, where he cut his teeth.
With the possible exception of Cream, The Jimi Hendrix Experience was debatably the world's finest-ever power trio. Axis was a showcase for Jimi's brash, scintillating songs and the grasp that Jimi and his cohorts Mitch Mitchell on drums and Noel Redding on bass had on the studio technology at their disposal, and the lyrical beauty of Hendrix's guitar playing.
"The Axis UHQR cut is amazing - full bodied, detailed, powerful and engaging. Very impressive. The best pressing of the record I have ever heard." - Bill Levenson, Grammy Award-winning reissue producer
