This Is Sinatra! is a compilation 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.
