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. Its catalogue included Ray Bryant, Milt Buckner, Panama Francis, Illinois Jacquet, Jo Jones, Sammy Price, and Buddy Tate. The label continued producing into the 1990s,[1] though issues seemed to have ceased in 2002.
