Any idea why Jones starting playing mellotron solos instead of organ solos?

The mellotron was not used on the 6.3 and 7.29 "Thank You"s in 1973. John Paul Jones used the organ as usual. Since no one has bothered to ask Jones why he used the mellotron for the solo and "Thank You" at Southampton (and I think one or two other shows in late-72 or early-73?), it is up to speculation. Either there was a problem with the Hammond B3 and he had to switch to the mellotron or Jones just did it on a whim to check out his new toy.
