The Old Forge (Monday 11th June 2018)
The Spotlight Kid brought this back for me, along with other Stax-related items, from a recent holiday trip to the US South. We're both Stax aficionados and memorably saw the famous Hit The Road Stax Stax/Volt Revue tour together at Birmingham Odeon back on 2nd April 1967, with Otis, Sam and Dave, Eddie Floyd, Sharon Tandy, Arthur Conley, Booker T and the MGs and the Mar-Keys, compered by Emperor Rosko.

The Hunter is a blues song originally recorded by Albert King for his landmark blues album Born Under a Bad Sign. It was written by Carl Wells and Stax Records' house band, Booker T and the MGs. Released as a single in 1969 it was covered the same year by Ike and Tina Turner, who had a hit with the tune in the US R&B and Hot 100 singles charts. The British band Free also recorded the song both in the studio in 1968 for Tons Of Sobs and live in 1971 for Free Live.
