Welcome to the Beatles Rarity of the Week. Back in January 2009 I wrote a little bit about George Harrison’s appearance for the Bob Dylan 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration held in New York City’s Madison Square Garden on October 16th, 1992 (see that post here). George’s cover of Bob Dylan’s 1966 classic “Absolutely Sweet Marie” was included on both the double CD and triple VHS packages covering the event. I mentioned in that post that George also covered Dylan’s “If Not For You,” a song he had previously covered in 1970 on his 3-LP signature LP set All Things Must Pass, though this performance is missing from both the CD set and the VHS as well as the 2014 re-issues on CD and DVD. The BROW post mentioned earlier featured George’s yet unreleased onstage account of “If Not For You” and this time around I offer up the rehearsal for that performance recorded on either the 15th or 16th of October of 1992. Enjoy…
