Lloyd Price talks about the Rumble in the Jungle, being the first American to sell a million records, and more

The best two hours you will spend this week.
In this episode of the Combat Jack Show – great podcast, by the way- , American R&B legend Lloyd Price, 82 now, talks about in time in the industry, racism and police harassment in America and many other stories.

He also discusses in detail his relationship with boxing promoter Don King, and how the Rumble in the Jumble fight between Ali and Foreman came to life. Great anecdotes about Mobutu, Stevie Wonder, and these few weeks in Zaire.

If you have not seen them already, I would also recommend you to watch the two great documentaries about the fight and the music festival in Zaire: When We Were Kings (produced by Lloyd Price) and Soul Power
