Pure McCartney is a live DVD/CD and DVD/2-LP album by singer-songwriters Tim Christensen, Mike Viola, and Tracy Bonham, with the band The Damn Crystals, released in 2013.


Pure McCartney contains a recording of a one-off tribute concert at Vega in Copenhagen in celebration of Sir Paul McCartney's 70th birthday that day.[1] The set list includes the 1971 McCartney album Ram, which is the favorite album of Christensen and Viola,[2] as well as several post-Beatles songs.[3] Vega's large concert hall, with a capacity of 1500, was sold out.[4] The artwork was inspired by Ram.
