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. 

Released in March 1969 from Blue Thumb Records in America, Liberty Records in England and Minit Records in Germany on vinyl and 8-track cartridge, Outta Season reached #41 (R&B) and #91 (Pop) in America. It was reissued on compact disc from Blue Moon Records on the double CD The Hunter / Outta Season in 2016.
