Ike & Tina Turner - Outta Season - Album

Outta Season is a blues album and contains Ike & Tina’s signature live song I’ve Been Loving You Too Long, which was also a single the same year. The Tina written song „I’m A Motherless Child“ was re-recorded from her in 2013 for the third Beyond album Love Within under the different title Mother Within. The song Crazy 'Bout You was a single only in England. The album was originally released in 1969 with a wonderful gatefold cover and different cover pictures depending on the country. It was reissued on the double CD The Hunter / Outta Season in 2006. For promotion, Blue Thumb Records released a vinyl promo single, featuring a Radio Spot on the a-side.

CashBox Review

March 29, 1969

The 'now' sound is blues, and the blues are now the sound of Ike and Tina Turner. This newly-recorded set features the vet R&B/Pop duo in a more contemporary framework than ever before, with increase emphasis on instrumental happenings. Material includes such blues standards as „Honest I Do,“ „My Babe,“ „Rock Me Baby,“ „Crazy ‘Bout You Baby“ and „Mean Old World“ as well as several Ike or Tina originals and Otis Redding’s „I've Been Loving You Too Long.“
