"Bluesmobile" by Phillip Walker & Otis Grand, from this album ...
Or it might look like this ...
- I couldn't find the lyrics for this song, but did notice that TK had brought this tune to our attention 2 years ago! So some of you may already have the MP3 downloaded, or you can listen to it on youtube which was uploaded today.

- From Arthur O'Hara the tune is called, "Bluesmobile"
All I can gather from the lyrics is it sounds like it's a 1973 L.A. (?) model, green with a black roof. I didn't hear any mention of Dodge or Plymouth, actually I'm not sure if I was entirely cognizant through the whole song, kinda zoned out there for a bit lol. It's ok, bit long maybe ...
- An instrumental from "The Italian Bluesman," Fabio Santangelo ...
^ That was 6 years ago, within a year of that being posted the video had disappeared. But now, Fabio is back ! Looks like he's been uploading music again on daTube for 3 months and today has re-released his instrumental track, Bluesmobile (Fill It Up With Unleaded Blues).
I noticed this next one was uploaded yesterday, "Bluesmobile" by Lil' Ed & the Blues Imperials. I thought for sure it was already posted in this thread but somehow it isn't ... ?, because it was first uploaded to daTube over 7 years ago yet not posted here. As it turns out my desktop and my phone give me different search results on daTube. My desktop search, using Chrome, never led me to this song even though I can see four uploads of it now right off the bat. Last night on my phone I typed "bluesmobile" into daTube and the version uploaded yesterday was my number one result. So just now I searched for "lil' ed bluesmobile" and here ya go, first time posted here but uploaded to daTube October 2012 .
In Chicago, a city overflowing with unrivaled blues talent, world-renowned Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials have been standing tall for over 30 years –an extraordinary feat for any group.
* I'm not sure if I could prove that my phone and desktop are giving me different search results, might have been a dream or some form of hallucination. HEY, I found Fabio again lol. It's still his page on daTube, I guess he decided to re-upload Bluesmobile (Fill It Up With Unleaded Blues) and took the previous one down. Good ol' Fabio!
I had posted at one point (Phillip Walker & Otis Grand,)
That tune is here, third post in this thread. I believe it was TK that had originally posted that one at Blues Central. We must have had a similar type thread at the ol' site although I don't recall for sure. The Lil' Ed song must have been posted over there, an earlier youtube video than the one here or maybe just an audio file ? I was very surprised we didn't have it here. There was a thread for Elwood's radio show back at Blues Central, maybe we were posting Bluesmobile tunes in that thread ??
There was a thread for Elwood's radio show back at Blues Central,
I didn't catch Elwood every week but when I did tune in, the show and the guests were always entertaining. It started in 1993 and I don't know if we ever covered the end of the show here but the radio stuff ended for Elwood July 2017.
Farewell Friends THEBLUESMOBILE on 7 July, 2017 at 10:24
Elwood Blues, your musical chauffeur, here.
The BluesMobile began life as the House of Blues Radio Hour, way back in 1993. Over the years we moved from the house to the road, but the mission was always the same: showcase the best in blues, blues-rock, roots music, R&B, soul, jazz, straight up rock… and all points in between.
I put the spotlight on new releases from old favorites and newbies. I played the crusty, the fresh, the seasoned, and the raw, featuring wide-ranging interviews with the musicians themselves, and many live in-house concerts, recorded exclusively for the BluesMobile.
I now give thanks to the stations, the sponsors, affiliates, producers, managers, agents, and all those hard workers who put the “business” in show business, and bigger thanks to all the players and fans who keep the show going. This series, alas, has gone as far as it can go. Our final broadcast will be July 30, 2017.
There is a crossroads dead ahead. Twenty-four years is a long time without a turn. We may turn left, or right, but we will no longer go forward. Time for a new direction, a new road. For us, the end of this one.
And so we leave you to your journey. Please tip a cold one for us before you continue on your way. Watch our tail lights as we vanish in the distance, then get back to it.
Remember: The blues never dies. It will never run out of road. That road goes on forever.
