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 was replaced in the UK with the song „Bold Soul Sister,“ which was also a single the same year.
