Off the Beatle Track is a 1964 album by George Martin & His Orchestra, released 10 July by United Artists Records in the United States and 3 August by Parlophone in the United Kingdom.

It is the first of a series of albums by Martin featuring instrumental arrangements of songs by The Beatles, for whom he served as producer, arranger, and occasional accompanying musician. It is also the first LP Martin released under his own name. This album was later issued on CD by One Way Records.

Despite its "Beatles" association and being released at the height of Beatlemania in both the UK and USA, the album did not sell in large quantities. As a result, it is now a collectors item, with copies selling for in excess of £100.[2]
