That's exactly the reason. It was convenient that the band released Final Bell and Live in Japan on Zero, so that a lot of the older material could be used. Granted, a lot of people love the Japan Live version of "Jesus Saves" (gotta love the crowd singing along, a true testament to the power of Savatage's music, knowing no boundaries, etc.), but perhaps (pure speculation here) they felt that it was a "Criss song," and to put anything less than his playing on that song on the comp, however great another guitarist might be, wouldn't do it justice.
