This Is Barbara Mandrell is the fifth studio album by American country music singer Barbara Mandrell, released in May 1976.
This was Mandrell's first album with ABC/Dot Records, her new record company. Mandrell had previously been signed to Columbia Records from 1969 to 1974, though only achieving modest success, especially with her albums. The first single off this album, "Standing Room Only", became her first Top 5 Country hit. Mandrell had only had four Top 10 hits under her previous record company over the course of five years. Following "Standing Room Only", two further singles were released. The second, "That's What Friends Are For", peaked at #16 and the third, "Love Is Thin Ice", only reached the Top 25. The album sold slightly better than her previous albums had done, peaking farther on the Top Country Albums chart at #26. This album set the stage for Mandrell's eventual success in the following decade, with further Top 10 singles, some of them reaching #1. Unlike most of Barbara's other albums, This Is Barbara Mandrell, consists of 11 tracks instead of 10.
