Jimi's Posthumous Releases

I recently got to thinking about how much Hendrix material has been released as "new" since his death in 1970. I feel like it's just a cash grab. Not a mean-spirited plot to bastardize his talent for money, but coincidentally a goldmine of wealth that comes from the fact that he recorded a monolithic amount of music. To put it to two extremes, would you rather have no "new" Jimi Hendrix? Or do you enjoy having this last bit of him to hold on to 44 years after the fact?
1The Jimi Hendrix Experience
Are You Experienced

Personally, I think it would have been a greater tribute to his legacy if the cutoff would've been his death.
2The Jimi Hendrix Experience
Axis: Bold As Love

Mainly because artists evolve, and Hendrix definitely would've changed with the times, probably ahead of the curve. Every album that gets released from his old sessions is merely a snapshot of where he was at when he was in his 20s.
3The Jimi Hendrix Experience
Electric Ladyland

All of these posthumous albums can't accurately depict where Hendrix would have travelled as an artist.
