Ring-a-Ding-Ding! is a 1961 album by Frank Sinatra.[4] It was the inaugural record on Sinatra's Reprise label and, as the initial concept was "an album without ballads", it consisted only uptempo swing numbers.

The title track was written specifically for Sinatra by Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen. The song "Have You Met Miss Jones?" was recorded for the album, though left off the final track listing. Ring-a-Ding-Ding! reached No. 4; it was given favorable reviews by Stereo Review, and, although a similar album (Sinatra's Swingin' Session!!!) was released by Capitol a mere two months prior, Ring-A-Ding-Ding! managed to maintain a 35-week stay on the charts. In the UK, the album reached No. 8 and stayed for 9 weeks on the chart.

The album was remastered and reissued by Concord Records on June 7, 2011, to mark its 50th Anniversary. The newest CD is an improvement on earlier releases as the original reverberation effect on Sinatra's voice has been decreased for a more natural sound.[5]
