The Hunter is the title track and the first single from the album The Hunter. The blues song was originally recorded by Albert King in 1967 but didn’t charted, in contrast to Ike & Tina’s version, which was a minor R&B hit. The version on the single is much shorter than on the album, which is over six minutes. The b-side track Crazy 'Bout You Baby, which was replaced in some European countries with the song „Bold Soul Sister,“ was also a single the same year in England.
