The Family Way is a soundtrack recording composed by Paul McCartney, released in January 1967. The album is the soundtrack to the 1966 film of the same name. The album was released under the name The George Martin Orchestra, The Family Way (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack).

The Family Way won an Ivor Novello Award in 1967 and was remastered and released on CD in 1996 with new musical compositions not on the original 1967 soundtrack album..

Following a 2003 CD reissue in mono, in 2011 a new remastered version of the soundtrack was released by Varese Vintage that featured the original 1967 score by Paul McCartney in the original sequence, remastered from the original first generation stereo master tapes, and included the unreleased stereo mix of "A Theme From The Family Way" as a bonus track, which had appeared originally as the B side of the 1966 UK/US 7-inch single by the Tudor Minstrels.
