This surfaced recently on YouTube, a five-hour (!) rehearsal tape of Paul McCartney and band running through lengthy instrumental jams and various tunes, including "Average Person," "Blue Moon of Kentucky," "Ebony and Ivory," "Keep Undercover," "Your Lucky Day" and more.

The same user also has posted rough-mix recordings from the McCartney II album and Paul's "Piano Tapes" home recordings.
