This album is a curiosity. Alain’s mother is Patience Dabany, who had connections with many American musicians. Alain’s father was president of the central African nation of Gabon. The story goes that James Brown and his band stopped in the capital of Libreville on their way to the Rumble In The Jungle boxing match in Kinshasa in 1974, and Alain convinced the band to back him up on his album. That’s right...This is James Browns band playing on this album! Alain never pursued a career in music, and instead converted to Islam, changed his name to Ali and pursued a career in politics. He is now the president of Gabon just like his father.
