If you were getting them via YT-dl then it might be worth my saying:

My impression is that YT often "shuffle the deckchairs" behind the scenes.
I can't tell if this is aimed at blocking methods like YT-dl or not. But in
practice I find it is often necessary to get an 'updated' version of YT-dl
in order to, once again, fetch items from YT.

BTW I found some nice (audio) examples of  performances by George Malcolm
the keyboard player on YT. Not all of which seem to have been re-issued by
'Eloquence'. Like his playing as it sounds like music rather than an
academic exercise. :-)
