J.B. Harold Blue Chicago Blues (J.B.ハロルド ブルー・シカゴ・ブルース) is a Sega Mega LD visual novel developed and published by Riverhillsoft. The fifth entry in the J.B. Harold series of murder mystery adventure games, it was first released in Japan in April 1995, and was brought to the United States later that year.

In September 1995, Riverhillsoft ported the game to the Sega Saturn. Featuring improved visuals and audio, this version would remain a Japanese exclusive.
