I’ve Been Loving You Too Long is a cover version from Otis Reeding and was taken from the album Outta Season. The single was released twice in America - in 1969 and 1971 - with different b-sides. Ike & Tina’s version differs from the original, because they added an additional section with an explicit conversation between Tina & Ike. In their live shows, Tina handled the microphone in a raunchy way, while Ike made suggestive slurping noises. In Gimme Shelter, a concert film of The Rolling Stones, Ike & Tina performed this song at Madison Square Garden in New York.
