George Martin Instrumentally Salutes "The Beatle Girls" is a 1966 album by George Martin & His Orchestra. It is the third in a series of albums by Martin, the Beatles' producer at the time, that consist of instrumental arrangements of Beatles songs. It was released by United Artists Records on 28 November 1966 in the United States, with the United Kingdom release following on 3 March 1967.[2]

Martin recorded the album following the sessions for the Beatles' 1966 LP Revolver.[3] The album is themed around Beatles songs that are titled after or refer to young women,[3] although some of the tracks depart from this concept.[4] Author Robert Rodriguez comments that the inclusion of "Yellow Submarine" "remains unexplained" and the record's title is challenged further by the presence of vocals on "Eleanor Rigby".[3] The album was issued on CD in 1994 by One Way Records.
