George Harrison’s estate posted an animated video wishing John Lennon a happy 80th last week. The video was posted without much fanfare and it’s been viewed less than 100 times.
The video is set to "It's Johnny's Birthday" from Harrison's 1970 album, All Things Must Pass.
An explanation on Harrison's website stated: "John was in one room at Abbey Road Studio recording new songs for what would become John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band, while in another room George was mixing tracks for what was soon to be All Things Must Pass.”
"George invited John (and Ringo) over to the mix room to present ‘It’s Johnny’s Birthday.’
The tune features George, [Beatles roadie] Mal Evans and engineer Eddie Klein performing a variation of the Martin and Coulter song ‘Congratulations.’"
