California Bloodlines is the second album by folk musician John Stewart, former member of the Kingston Trio. It was named by Rolling Stone as of one of the 200 best albums of all time. The album, which was considered by many to be his signature album, was recorded in Nashville. Stewart used some of the same musicians that recorded on Bob Dylan's Nashville Skyline, which was recorded at the same studio.

Originally issued on Capitol in May 1969 as an LP, it has several reissues. Re-released on CD from Bear Family Records paired with Willard in September 1994 with the title California Bloodlines/Willard minus 2. There is also an LP, California Bloodlines Plus..., with added tracks from Willard.
