This Is Sinatra! is an album by Frank Sinatra, released in 1956.

This is the first collection of Sinatra's singles and B-sides with Nelson Riddle. This album is now available on CD (Bluemoon CD 803) All of the tracks also appear on the box set The Complete Capitol Singles Collection and various Capitol reissues. A second collection, entitled This Is Sinatra Volume 2, was released in 1958.

Both albums were part of Capitol's "This Is" series. The albums highlighted past hits by artists like Sinatra, June Christy, Dean Martin and Nat "King" Cole as well as newly released (and hopefully hit-making) singles.
