A Lost Hendrix Anthem?

From The Red Dragonhood:

When record producer Dave Chapman acquired the old Crouch Hill recording studios in London’s Stroud Green in 1994, he came across an old tea chest full of eight-track analogue tapes dating from the 1960s and 70s…he discovered that a wild and emotional arrangement of the Welsh National anthem, Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau, played on a distorted electric guitar, had been tacked onto the end of the tape. Although Chapman was from Essex, the playing caused the hairs on the back of his neck to stand up, especially as it sounded just like Jimi Hendrix.

Could this be a lost Hendrix Track?  It certainly could be passed off as genuine, but then again, as most of the people involved in the history of this mysterious recording have died, it is all up to the listener.  Even if it’s not genuine Hendrix, it’s still an interesting story to read.
