And we’re back to doing traditional Battles of the Bands again. There are a couple of songs called "Black Coffee," so we’ll do them separately.
"Black Coffee" was written by Ike Turner for wife Tina to sing. It appeared on their 1972 album Feel Good.
Stevie Marriott and Humble Pie (which at the time included Peter Frampton) covered "Black Coffee" on their 1973 album Eat It. It was issued as a single, but failed to chart; nevertheless, it became one of their better-known songs.
Beth Hart and Joe Bonamassa
Singer Beth Hart and guitarist Joe Bonamassa have released three albums of covers, the most recent being 2018’s Black Coffee.
