    The Jimi Hendrix Experience Axis Bold As Love MONO UHQR Analogue Prod PRE ORDER
    Please note, this is a PRE-ORDER. The record is scheduled to be delivered in April. Definitive handmade limited run reissue of Jimi Hendrix Axis: Bold As Love. Newly remastered by Bernie Grundman from the original master tapes. Mono release limited to 1,500 copies. Pressed at Quality Record Pressings using Clarity Vinyl on a manual Finebilt press. Purest possible pressing and most visually stunning presentation and packaging! Includes 16-page booklet with recording session info and an essay written by Brad Tolinski, former editor of Guitar World Magazine. The Axis UHQR cut is amazing full bodied, detailed, powerful and engaging. The best pressing of the record I have ever heard. Bill Levenson, Grammy Award-winning reissue producer. AP’s UHQR mastered by Bernie Grundman towers above the rest. During our listening session, I told (Michael Fremer), if someone doesn’t like this record’s sound, their listening situation is crap. It’s everything the SACD offers and more, minus the slight digital sheen, and shockingly quieter Yes! The vinyl produced blacker backgrounds than did the SACD, hence the “shock” Ed. In addition, the packaging (which was sent in an unfinalized version) is stunning; the album itself is housed in a Stoughton tip-on gatefold while the outer two-piece box is of excellent build and features a beautiful wooden spine. Read the entire commentary, based on a pre-production copy of the album, here. Analogue Productions, the audiophile in-house reissue label of Acoustic Sounds, Inc. 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 Bernie Grundman from the original analog master tapes. Each UHQR will be pressed at Acoustic Sounds’ 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 will 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 will be hand inspected upon pressing completion, and only the truly flawless will be allowed to go to market. Each UHQR will be packaged in a deluxe box and will include a booklet detailing the entire process of making a UHQR along with a hand-signed certificate of inspection. This will be a truly deluxe, collectible product. Each Axis UHQR will be available as two versions: mono and stereo. The stereo release will be limited to 5,000 copies, while the mono release will be limited to 1,500 copies. The deluxe box will be 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. For those Jimi Hendrix fans who collect and prefer his many vinyl album releases, an original mono copy of Axis: Bold As Love remains the coin of the realm. Mono vinyl pressings of both Are You Experienced and Axis: Bold As Love are significant because they are not only difficult to find in premium condition but they also feature discrete mixes made specifically for monophonic release, originally created by producer Chas Chandler, Jimi Hendrix and Eddie Kramer. For this mono edition of Axis, Bernie Grundman’s Los Angeles mastering facility was utilized, using a specially equipped Studer tape machine outfitted with a full track mono head block. The machine has also been refitted with vintage Ampex 350 tube electronics. These technical alterations provided the closest possible approximation of the original 1967 Track Records mono mastering process. The edition also features the original gatefold sleeve artwork. Grundman cut the lacquers for the edition; the plating at QRP was directed by Gary Salstrom, master plating technician and QRP general manager. The Axis: Bold As Love UHQRTM will include a 16-page booklet featuring recording information from the sessions at Olympic Studios in London and an essay written by Brad Tolinski, former editor of Guitar World Magazine. 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 most lasting song for many is the awe-inspiring’Little Wing. With its perfect blend of lead and rhythm guitar (the song’s introductory phrases blurred the line forever between the two), the tune is a pure, simple thing of beauty… In true 1967 style, the production on Axis is superb. Jimi never sounded as vulnerable and accessible, vocally and instrumentally, while the analog thud of Mitch Mitchell and the solid basslines of Reddding were the ultimate rhythm section of the day – with a nod, of course, to Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker, their only rivals in so many respects. 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. (Axis) followed up Hendrix’s groundbreaking debut effort with a solid collection of great tunes and great interactive playing between himself, Noel Redding, Mitch Mitchell, and the recording studio itself. Wisely retaining manager Chas Chandler to produce the album and Eddie Kramer as engineer, Hendrix stretched further musically than the first album, but even more so as a songwriter. He was still quite capable of coming up with spacy rockers like’You Got Me Floating,”Up from the Skies,’ and’Little Miss Lover,’ radio-ready to follow on the commercial heels of’Foxey Lady’ and’Purple Haze. But the beautiful, wistful ballads’Little Wing,”Castles Made of Sand,”One Rainy Wish,’ and the title track set closer show remarkable growth and depth as a tunesmith, harnessing Curtis Mayfield soul guitar to Dylanesque lyrical imagery and Fuzz Face hyperactivity to produce yet another side to his grand psychedelic musical vision. Bottom line, January of 1968 brought Axis: Bold As Love to the U. An album that expanded Jimi’s six-string flame with celestial clarity, and also brought his rapidly evolving songwriting gift to the fore. It was recorded at Olympic Studios in London.
