The Artist: Jimi Hendrix
The Album: 1971's The Cry of Love
Dead-On or Dead Wrong? Dead-On! Hendrix has a posthumous discography that can only be rivaled by 2Pac—including an album, Valleys of Neptune, that was released earlier this year. We're not going to pretend to be the go-to authority on the electric guitar god, but from what we can tell, he's got a bunch of mediocre posthumous releases and a couple that are worth checking out further. This, his first posthumous release, is the closest to a true Hendrix album as just about all of the songs on it were finished or close to finished at the time of his death.
