Gentleman's Blues is Cracker's fourth album, released in 1998. It would be the band's final album for Virgin Records.

Cracker frontman David Lowery said that the album's name arose when guitarist Johnny Hickman heard him playing a tune on the piano and observed that it sounded like an old Southern gentleman trying to play the blues.[2]
