Analysis by Alex Henderson,

To Begin With released in the Agreed States in 1992 and reissued by Australia«s AIM name in 2005, Replica Affliction finds Roy Ayers doing some collaborating with the fresh funk/soul icon Rick James (who died in 2004 at the age of 56). By 1992, James was dream of close by his prime, both commercially and creatively -- and despondently, he was receiving more notice for his wicked treatment and judiciary problems than for his lilting contributions. But James, for all his demons, was seriously expert -- and this CD offers a rare glimpse of Mr. Tough Funk at a pass when he didn»t have a data dispense and wasn«t doing much recording. (After 1988»s Wonderful, James didn«t data another open-fledged album until 1997»s Urban Rapsody, his irrefutable album.) Ayers and James, it should be acclaimed, had two very different approaches to funk; Ayers favored a soothing, faultless overconfident that reflected his jazz horizon, while James was pre-eminent for a harder, louder, more in-your-look funk manner that had a amaze & flow thought. (James once played with Neil Junior in an foggy «60s merge called the Mynah Birds.) But James was also a control of fresh human being ballads and tame jams -- and he has no fine kettle of fish decree some plain compass basis with Ayers on parts of this album. While James isn»t featured as extensively as some of his hardcore fans would have liked, he has some inspired moments on the ballad «More Than You Know,» the Teddy Riley-ish «Say You Will,» and a remake of Ayers« «Everybody Loves the Sunshine.» Clear no : this is a Roy Ayers album first and , but James» confidence is a settled plus -- and while Replica Affliction is marginally inconsistent, getting a rare opportunity to hark to Ayers and James working together makes this 73-two shakes of a lamb's tail log CD usefulness the consequence of admission.
