"Por Siempre Beatles" is a Beatles compilation album released in Spain in 1971 (EMI/Odeon J060-04973). The album, whose title translates, "Forever Beatles" or "Beatles Forever," is best remembered for the inclusion of two b-sides, "The Inner Light", which was the b-side to "Lady Madonna," and "I'm Down," the b-side to "Help!", neither of which were available on American or British Beatles albums until the late 1970s. Both "The Inner Light" and "I'm Down", along with "You Know My Name (Look Up the Number)" (the b-side to "Let It Be") represented the only Beatles songs not to appear on an American Beatles album in the sixties or early seventies.

Because of the inclusion of "I'm Down" and the George Harrison composition, "The Inner Light," "Por Siempre Beatles" was, for much of the seventies, a highly-sought album among Beatles collectors. With the placement of "I'm Down" on the 1976 compilation album, "Rock 'n' Roll Music" and the inclusion of "The Inner Light" on "Rarities" (which was first included in the 1978 boxed set, "The Beatles Collection", and then released as a separate British album in 1979), interest in "Por Siempre Beatles" waned among collectors. "You Know My Name (Look Up the Number)", was also included on "Rarities".)

None of the twelve tracks on "Por Siempre Beatles" appear on an official British studio Beatles album, although "Day Tripper" and "We Can Work It Out" are included on the 1966 British compilation album, "A Collection of Beatles Oldies", while "The Fool on the Hill", "Strawberry Fields Forever", "Your Mother Should Know", "Penny Lane", "Baby, You're a Rich Man", and "Blue Jay Way" appear on the American "Magical Mystery Tour" album, which was widely available as an import in Great Britain prior to its release in the UK in 1976. "I Call Your Name" and "Yes It Is" were only released on American albums in the sixties ("The Beatles' Second Album" and "Beatles VI" respectively.)
