The Hunter is an Ike & Tina studio album with a very strange cover art. The title track and the song I Know were released as singles - both with the song „Bold Soul Sister“ on the b-side. The duo  performed some songs live in their concerts, released on different live albums like Live In Paris from 1971.

Released originally in October 1969 from Blue Thumb Records in America and Harvest Records in Germany on vinyl, The Hunter reached #49 (R&B) and #176 (Pop) in America. In 2006 it was reissued on compact disc from Blue Moon Records on the double CD The Hunter / Outta Season.

Billboard Magazine - October 18, 1969: Blue Thumb's "Outta Season" LP brought the much-recorded duo high and heavy on the charts, and their latest, featuring "l 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 Magazine - October 18, 1969: (Blue Thumb BTS11) 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.
