Ike & Tina Turner - The Hunter - Album

CashBox - October 18, 1969

Blue Thumb's „Outta Season“ LP brought the much-recorded duo high and heavy on the charts, and their latest, featuring „I Know,“ should outrace all competitors for the lke & Tina Turner laurels. Bob Krasnow’s strong production sets the stage for this raucous rock 'n' blues session, as Tina rips up the vocals and lke provides the rhythm. „The Hunter“ and „I Smell Trouble“ should score.
