Billboard Review

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.

CashBox Review

October 18, 1969

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.
