Only heard the big three plus Band of Gypsies:

Are You Experienced? - ****1/2
Axis: Bold as Love - ****
Electric Ladyland - ***1/2
Band of Gypsies - ***

I've been meaning to go through with Valleys and Radio One, though.
He gave her his town house and his racing horses. Each meal she ate was a dozen courses. She had a million dollars worth of nickels and dimes. She sat around and counted them all a million times.

get First Rays Of The New Rising Sun first, imo it is the best posthumous Hendrix release as it was the next album he was working on when he died. I think it would've been his best if he was able to finish it himself.

Like always I would advise to go for live stuff, the ones he took a better acid on LOL
1) Band of Gypsys(or Live at the Fillmore East - double album, which is from the same new years eve concerts )
2) Blues album
3) Woodstock
4) Blue Wild Angel - Live at the Isle Of Wight
5) Live at Berkeley
6) Are You Experienced?
7) Electric Ladyland
8) Axis: Bold As Love
9) First Rays Of The New Rising Sun
10) BBC Sessions

Something like that...
