This Is Sinatra Volume Two is an album by American singer Frank Sinatra, released in 1958.

Another collection of Sinatra singles and B-sides with backings courtesy of Nelson Riddle, following 1956's This Is Sinatra!. It also included seven new tracks, all recorded in late 1957: "I Believe," "Everybody Loves Somebody," "It's the Same Old Dream," "Time After Time," "You'll Always Be the One I Love," "If You Are But a Dream," and "Put Your Dreams Away." Since Sinatra first recorded these songs in the 1940s, and since most deal with dreams, they might have been meant for a concept album that never came to completion.

"Wait for Me" is a song from the 1956 film "Johnny Concho," a Western in which Sinatra starred.

This collection is long out of print, and only appears on compact disc in its entirety and original running order on 1994's British release, "This is Sinatra, 1953-1957," (on EMI's "Music for Pleasure" [MFP] subsidiary) and within 1998's The Capitol Years 21 disc box set, also a British release. Most of the tracks appear on the box set The Complete Capitol Singles Collection. Others appear on the three-disc compilation The Capitol Years.
