Bold As Love (4:11)

Cover of Experience Hendrix: The Best of Jimi Hendrix

From Experience Hendrix: The Best of Jimi Hendrix and 3 other releases

Bold as Love is a song by Jimi Hendrix, the final song and title track of the Jimi Hendrix Experience’s 1967 album Axis: Bold As Love.
Jimi Hendrix, a self-taught guitarist, was unable to read music, and as such often experienced musical and emotional ideas in terms of color (similar to the condition of synesthesia). The lyrics reflect this (Hendrix stated, in explanation of his color-emotion interpretations, “Anger is purple; I’m purple with rage… “, paralleling the lyrical reference to the “purple armor” of a personified anger). The piece also has elements of a love song, as Hendrix explained that his usage of color is how “… you explain your different emotions in colors toward this certain girl who has all the colors in the world…”.
