Jimi Hendrix and the Experience's first lp had some damn fine songs. Not only was Hendrix a guitar virtuoso, but he was an intelligent songwriter. Seems to me I played this album over and over and over. Jimi approaches poetry with the many classics presented here. The title track, along with his powerful statement of individuality "If 6 Was 9" make this album, to my ear, the best collection Hendrix put together.
The album's opening track, "EXP" is some sci-fi nonsense that still retains a certain dated charm, as Hendrix's guitar becomes some sort of rocket ship taking off as the mix pans from left to right to left again. Hendrix's guitar artistry is captured in about fifteen seconds. The opening of "Little Wing" does this delicate dance through blues, flamenco and psychedelic music, finally leading into the song's lyrics, which succeed as real poetry.
Because Hendrix became the god of guitarists, it's easily forgotten what a talent he was lyrically.
Which shows that "The Wind Cries Mary" from the first lp was no One Rainy Wish - The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Axis : Bold As Love. I have a feeling it all came too easy for Hendrix. He was born to be The Guitar Hero.

But One Rainy Wish - The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Axis : Bold As Love thing about Hendrix was that he had that sound, he could achieve that lyrical feeling with a fatter sound on his Strat than you could get with a regular hollow-bodied jazz guitar. In reviews of To Fall In Love - Tim Maia - Tim Maia Bold as Love"One Rainy Wish" has generally been positively regarded, although some critics do not like the ending.
The lyrical content of the song is said to be articulated from the perspective of a visiting alien "concerned about what has happened to [Earth] since the last time he passed through.
