Steve Tibbetts Covers Hendrix's "Villanova Junction" (MP3)

Recently I had the opportunity to review guitarist Steve Tibbetts' latest acoustic endeavor Natural Causes. A cover of Jimi Hendrix's "Villanova Junction" got axed from the album because it "just didn't mesh." As Tibbetts stated on his website:

"It was like having a dinner party where, after most everyone had left and the remaining guests were starting to fall asleep at the table there's a sudden knock at the door and it's Jimi Hendrix with an acoustic guitar. Cognitive dissonance."

Perhaps it's just me, and I have the tendency to be a "completest," I really don't see (or rather, hear) the problem. Can a Hendrix tune slip into something like Natural Causes unnoticed? You can easily find out for yourself by downloading the mp3 from his website. Just don't blame him for any lack of continuity in your playlist.
