Sinatra Sings... of Love and Things is an album by Frank Sinatra, released in 1962.

This is the fifth compilation of Capitol singles and B-sides. All songs are available in the box set The Complete Capitol Singles Collection, except "I Gotta Right to Sing the Blues", the final song Sinatra recorded for Capitol (which appears as a bonus track on the CD reissue of Come Swing with Me!) and "The Nearness of You", which appears as a bonus track on the CD reissue of Nice 'n' Easy. (It was recorded at those sessions.) The album has also been issued in the U.K. as part of the 21-CD box set The Capitol Years. There is an error on the back cover of the original 1962 LP; the very top line states "Twelve great performances never before available in an album!", when actually, the closing tune "Something Wonderful Happens in Summer" appears on the 1958 compilation LP This Is Sinatra! Volume Two.
