Cold Cuts (Another Early Version). Paul McCartney and Wings. 1987.

West German pressing of the oft-floated but never-realized odds and sods collection that Paul McCartney seems to have fussed over endlessly in the early 80s but never got around to actually putting out. As the parenthetical part of the title suggests, there are a number of different versions of this comp floating around. This one opens its second side with an 11 minute version of Linda’s Wide Prairie. It’s worth seeking out if that’s your thing.
