Not long after, they released their first all-covers album “Don’t Explain” in 2011, because, Hart jokes “Joe asked me to.” The album received a lot of praise as “one of the best rock albums of the year” and quickly reached the number 3 spot on Billboard’s Blues Chart.

Each one having the majestic heart and soul that Beth and Joe bleed on each record.

Recorded in 5 days at Studio at the Palms, Las Vegas in August 2016 with some of the finest musicians around, they have once again recalled some familiar names in Anton Fig (Drums/Percussion), Ron Dziubla (Saxophone), and Lee Thornburg (Horn Arrangements/Trumpet/Trombone) and welcomed in Reese Wynans (Keyboards), Michael Rhodes (Bass), Rob Mc Nelley (Rhythm Guitar), Paulie Cerra (Saxophone), Mahalia Barnes (Backing Vocals), Jade Macrae (Backing Vocals) and Juanita Tippins (Backing vocals).

“But you don’t want to hear me singing Ella Fitzgerald…” he explained as Beth joins in.

“I would never do Ella Fitzgerald without being with Joe, the things I get to do with you are things I think I grew up always wanting to do, but never believed I could.”The gospel flavoured R&B workout Saved originally performed by La Vern Baker - only the second female solo artist to be inducted in to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1991 - has been covered by; Elvis Presley, Brenda Lee, Billy Fury, Elkie Brooks and The Band amongst others and is a full throttle, raucous, tongue-in-cheek moment, written from the perspective of someone who had lived a fast, loose life but is then "saved" and is now standing on a corner preaching to the passers-by.

They harness prime Steve Marriot on his take of Ike & Tina Turner’s Black Coffee, inspiration coming from his version live on the BBC’s Old Grey Whistle Test in 1973, which see’s Beth sing with fire, fury and soul.“It’s really predicated on the vocals,” Bonamassa explains.

“We can’t cut these tunes without Beth singing and once she starts singing, it’s the glue that inspires us to get the extra 10% out of the playing.“We have tracks like that in which, it was such a noisy jam in the studio, and I love that track, the energy in it.” Shirley enthuses.Addicted, is taken from the 2007 trip-hop leaning album by Austrian Electronic trio Waldeck which Shirley came across whilst on holiday and “shazamed” it.If we just cut them and sang later, the magic wouldn’t be there.”“That’s something the two of us stopped doing many, many years ago” agrees Hart.“There was all this layering and layering and then it’s time for you to sing and it’s like you’re not even making music any more.Talking about the sessions behind Black Coffee, Seesaw, 2011’s Don’t Explain and 2014s Live in Amsterdam, Shirley gives some insight of what they are looking to achieve; “We’re trying not to dig into a playbook that’s been done many times which is the old soul classics.
