With little fanfare, 19 diverse George Harrison videos have been posted to YouTube recently, including live performances, standard videos for studio recordings, interviews, rehearsals and more. Though there is no text explaining why the videos have been posted at this particular time, the date they were uploaded – November 29, 2016 – marked the 15th anniversary of his death. They are all available to view at the GeorgeHarrisonVEVO channel.All of the clips come from Harrison’s solo years, including videos for popular songs such as “This Song,” “Crackerbox Palace” and “Got My Mind Set On You,” the latter being Harrison’s final #1 single, from 1987.Related: George Harrison launches first solo tour, 1974One highlight among the videos is “When We Was Fab,” Harrison’s 1988 tribute to that little band he was in during his youth. It begins with Harrison standing alone in front of a brick wall, strumming a black-and-white Fender while miming the words. At about the half-minute mark, a fellow wearing sunglasses and a neatly trimmed beard delivers a cello to George and—well, what do you know?—it’s Ringo! As disembodied hands emerge from unlikely parts of Harrison’s body, the scene gets more surreal, with various individuals arriving and disappearing just as quickly, among them Jeff Lynne and Elton John—and a lot more Ringo.
