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. Her 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. Mandrell released three singles from This is Barbara Mandrell, including "Standing Room Only". The second single "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 other albums to come that would sell more and her singles would also peak in the Top 10 more often and eventually hit #1.
