Blues is a posthumous compilation album by American musician Jimi Hendrix, originally released in April 1994 via MCA Records.

Blues was compiled by interim Hendrix producer Alan Douglas and contains eleven songs recorded by Hendrix between 1966 and 1970, six of which had been unreleased previously.

Seven of the songs were written by Hendrix and the remaining were covers by blues artists including Muddy Waters, Booker T. Jones, and Elmore James.

Most are demos, jams, and live recordings, which Hendrix may or may not have completed for release.

Blues was met with favourable reviews and chart successes upon release in 1994.

A music reviewer Richie Unterberger wrote of Hendrix's blues legacy in Blender as follows:  “…though it's reductionist to define Hendrix as a bluesman just because he was black, he melded Chicago blues and country blues and interplanetary blues and bent blues like a supernatural. His sound was even thicker than mentor Albert King's, yet it could get as fanciful as prime Skip James…”

The double album is a 2017 reissue on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with printed booklet, pressed in Europe via Experience Hendrix.
