Ike & Tina performed some songs live in their concerts, released on different albums like Live In Paris from 1971. The album was reissued on the double CD The Hunter / Outta Season in 2006.

Ike & Tina Turner had a noisemaker with their single „The Hunter,“ and a 6 minute, 30 second version of the song leads off this powerhouse album, which should hit the Top 100 Albums. The two soul singers really sock it to the listener on this one, and they should reap a reward equal to their talents. The Hunter is an album to stock.
