Here is a YouTube video from a 2020 podcast, in which Deborah Smith Cahan called in and discussed this (her sitting in as replacement bassist for JPJ at the Cleveland 1970 concert, because JPJ's father had died and he had to leave).   She doesn't go into much detail--nothing about what songs she played, or any interactions with the band members--and the podcast hosts unfortunately don't ask her any follow up questions.  She begins talking about this at about 32 and half minutes into this interview.

She posted here on the forum years back, but didn't get any further details either.

Great thread. 

I have a two fold question, if you please? I saw Page and Plant in Knoxville, TN on March 3rd, 1995. Firstly, do any photos exist from this show? I seem to recall a couple being used in a USA Today article, but I cant seem to find that now. Also, during the show, Robert mentions that he and Jimmy stayed in Gatlinburg (a small, touristy resort town not far from Knoxville) the night before. I was under the impression (based on previous thread comments) that the boys flew in from Atlanta to Knoxville the day of the show,. If they did stay in Gatlinburg, any idea where they stayed. My gut tells me that it was probably a private mountain cabin (as they are everywhere in Gatlinburg.)

Thanks in advance.

I was there also. Second row right center.

Saw them in Atl a couple of days before in the nosebleed section after sitting in line before dawn to get tickets. Sold out in an hour.

A couple of days later we decided to go  to Knoxville to get "scalped" and stopped by a Lovemands in Cleveland TN just in case there were tickets left. The lady at the ticket register was flabbergasted when our tickets became available only minutes earlier that were returned from a radio station. 2nd Row near center stage! We ran out of Lovemands like the 2 guys allowed in by the cops in the SRTS movie!

There is a Youtube video boot of the night and the cover of the Cure's Lullaby and opening with The Wanton Song was a highlight.

Thank you very much, ABHouston.

I show Cleveland concert show time was also moved from 8:30 pm to 5:30 pm to allow JPJ to make a late evening flight to London following death of Joe Baldwin (his father).

Frank Melfi quite likely photographed the Knoxville show and can be contacted on Facebook. I know he shot the Memphis show the following night.

The official tour itinerary booklet provided to the band, staff and crew has them flying from Atlanta's DeKalb Airport to Knoxville's McGee Airport the day of the show and checking into the Hyatt Regency. They were then to be flown from McGee Airport to Memphis International the following day for the Memphis show that night. Since the day before the Knoxville show was a day off it is quite possible Jimmy & Robert elected to deviate from published itinerary and stay in Gatlinburg instead of another night in Atlanta.     

A Knoxville concert review was published in The News-Sentinel on March 4, 1995 but unfortunately I don't currently have it on file in my archive.
