Why didn't Hendrix's "Dolly Dagger" become one of his bigger songs?

Maybe Warner Brothers records didn’t shell out enough payola to make it popular. Not that I ever heard it and thought it was an absolute masterpiece.

Out of curiosity, just how many posthumous releases become big hits? I am thinking that Janis Joplin’ “Me and Bobby McGee” and Otis Redding “Dock of the Bay” came out, or became popular right after they died. But I think after a few months, people just revert to the familiar songs. The hardcore fans will buy vault material and live shows.

 Alan Douglas controlled Hendrix's releases in the 1970s and was controversial in editing them and adding session musicians to fill out parts. Maybe Warner Brothers resented him and wouldn't heavily promote what he released.
