Running order[edit]

This says that some pressings had a different running order. Can anyone be more specific than saying that Bold as Love was not the last track? --Benwilson528 18:37, 1 March 2006 (UTC)

I came to this page thinking to ask if a note should be made on this - the article doesn't seem to say it any more. I have a cassette which has: 1) EXP, Up from the Skies, Spanish Castle Magic, Little Wing (first variant), If 6 Was 9, One Rainy Wish; 2) You Got Me Floatin', Castles Made of Sand, She's So Fine, Little Miss Lover (first variant of side 2), Bold as Love, Wait Until Tomorrow, Ain't No Telling. IOW, 1.4 and 1.5 are moved to the end of side 2, and 2.4 is moved to the end of side 1, presumably to idiotically balance the side lengths. I don't know if it ever would have varied on vinyl or CD (IIRC, my own record was in the right order, and my CD is) but it definitely does on cassette. -- (talk) 03:00, 6 September 2011 (UTC)

Rage Against The Machine?[edit]

To me, the moment I heard "Spanish Castle Magic," I realized where Rage got a lot of their influence from. The riff is straight-up Tom Morello, or, I should say, Tom Morello is straight-up Jimi. (talk) 16:21, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

NPOV problems, on a music page - as always[edit]

NPOV just doesn't seem to exist very much on band and album pages.

Example: "The group, however, undoubtedly sounds more confident and more proficient than it did on its debut." Caleb462 23:41, 20 January 2007 (UTC)

Actually, that's the exact line that got me to jump on the talk page. I just listened to both albums and this seems to be nothing more than an opinion. In MY opinion, they were already proficient ;). That's why Jimi got kicked out of the Airborne. This is definetly not NPOV. I'm going to try and clean up this article. Anybody else want in? Ph33rspace 05:42, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

John mayer also covered little wing —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:47, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

Is there any information about who is the artist for the album cover? I ask because of a (non-fiction) book that mentions a lady who claims to be the artist of a Jemi Hendrix album cover, The_Year_of_Living_Biblically -- The lady who is the possible artist is a neighbor of the author...but, near the end of the book, the lady passes away, before she can complete a book she was writing about 60's/70's musicians she knew. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:38, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

According to the designer it was a cheap, mass produced religious poster bought in a London market. It is a copy of the Hindu devotional painting known as "Viraat Purushan-Vishnuroopam" showing the different forms of Vishnu with a small superimposed, photo portrait of the group (by Karl Ferris) overpainted by Roger Law to blend in[5]. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jameselmo (talkcontribs) 18:08, 1 February 2008 (UTC) Why is there a need for a citation there? Thats its a Hindu Devotional piece depicted to the point of cliche is common knowledge. For example,if They had used the ceiling of the Cistine Chapel,it would require no citation to point that out, any more than it would require a citation if I identified a picture of the moon, and called it "the moon".


Can somebody mercifully fix that section by limiting it to something like "Many musicians have covered songs from 'Axis', including" and a simple list of names - if not removing it entirely? It's excruciating to encounter the phrase "...also covered" or "Another musician who covered..." or the word "covered" itself dozens of times in a row. (Actually, I may do this myself.)

Legacy Section[edit]

I Think More Should Be Added To The Legacy Section, such as the critical reception of the album, and its subsequent legacy and ratings on websites and magazines. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:48, 28 November 2011 (UTC)
