I would think Rico and Joe Mansano Bullet Dub or Now Gen In Dub. The former I've heard but never seen and the latter a friend has seen in the 70's once but never after.

Not claiming to be an expert, but...

Leggo Dub was pretty rare, tho reissued on CD on Hot Pot a few years back. Was this a Steve Barrow label?

And I've never seen any other copies of Sly & Robbie's Disco Dub LP apart from the one I have.

Decent album, but with one dynamite long dub, Sidewalk Doctor, a version of the Temptations hit written by Smokey Robinson.

Both are quite rare but also turn up relatively often. I would say Leggo Dub is much rarer than Disco Dub and definitely the better set of the two. Mghifi had a dub LP on acetate of (mostly) unreleased material from Leo Simpson. That has to be incredibly rare.

I think there are a lot of dub LPs that hardly ever come up.

Lovers dub
Dub in blood (JA press)
Edi Fitzroy meets the roots radics
Ja-Man dub

I think jb is pretty much right. The rarest dub LPs are probably the ones that never made it past the test press phase. Blank label LPs that only a handful of people know about like Randy's dub, that Linval set that just got reissued and there's a blank Black Music dub LP.

I think I have it but I won't tell you the title of it nor the name of the label. Not even the matrix number. Only a few test presses exist in the whole of the universe. Thís LP was supposed to be released back in 197x but for some strange reason it never happened. I am sure there are more LPs like that. Keep on searching and you will find.

Don't want to sound like a grouch but I would prefer if eBay links for your own (or someone else) auctions of dub albums wasn't posted in this thread. There's an entire subforum dedicated for that on B&F.
