Nothing But the Best is a 2008 compilation album by American singer Frank Sinatra. All the tracks on this album are recordings made when Sinatra was on his own Reprise label, thus the first track, "Come Fly with Me" is not the 1957 Capitol version. Other notable differences are "Strangers in the Night" has an extended fade out and the first two cymbal notes are cut from the beginning of the "Theme from New York, New York".

The album was certified Gold by the RIAA on December 9, 2008. [2] As of June 4, 2009, the album has sold 525,478 copies in the US. It has been present on the Billboard Top 200 for 87 weeks as of May 29, 2010 [3] The producer of this album is Charles Pignone and the executive producer is Robert Finkelstein & Jimmy Edwards.

This album is presented in 3 versions:standard edition (22 tracks with 1 bonus track and another one but in not all releases), Christmas edition (22 tracks with 1 bonus track + 12 Christmas songs) and a DVD edition (22 tracks with 1 bonus track + 1 DVD concert of the artist, in addition this album is packaged in Digipack format).
