Blues Unlimited (ISSN 0006-5153) was a British monthly music magazine dealing with all aspects of blues music. Co-founded in 1963 by Simon A. Napier (not to be confused with Simon Napier-Bell) and Mike Leadbitter, it was - along with its later American counterpart Living Blues - considered one of the premier magazines for blues music.

The magazine launched in 1963[1] as a typed, mimeographed pamphlet; its last issue (#148/149), by then a full-fledged photo-offset production, was published in the winter of 1987[1] and edited by Mike Rowe.[2]
