Black & Blue Records was a record company and label founded in France in 1968 that specialized in blues and jazz.

Black & Blue reissued music from small American labels before producing original releases. Some of these releases were by black musicians who were visiting France. The label's catalogue included music by Ray Bryant, Milt Buckner, Panama Francis, Earl Hines, Illinois Jacquet, Jo Jones, Sammy Price, and Buddy Tate.[1]

Many of their recordings have been re-released in recent years on Evidence Records.[citation needed]
