RANDY'S DUB - Has anyone ever seen a copy of it for sale?

Postby dubmastercanada » Thu Sep 20, 2012 8:09 pm

I've been collecting dub lp's for 20 years and have NEVER seen a copy of this lp for sale anywhere. I've never even heard of anybody that has it in their own collection even the heavyweight Japanese guys. I heard Steve barrow has a damaged copy (that's why some of the tracks were maybe missing from the reissue). As far as I know there were only a handful pressed when it came out. I think this could be the rarest dub lp. And one of the most significant (vol 2 of the legendary java dub lp) and I am guessing a mint copy would fetch $5000 bucks on eBay.

Yes it's rare. »The King of Dub« obviously has a copy though.

If it came up it would rather likely pull more money than I make after a months hard work or something. Some other dub albums that seem to be incredibly rare are:
Richie Mac - Jah Is Light Dub (Music-ism LP)
Edi Fitzroy Meets Roots Radics at Channel One (Musical Ambassor LP)
Now Generation in Dub (Blank LP)
Rico Rodriguez & Joe Mansano - Bullet Dub (Blank LP)

ultra rare doesn´t automatically indicate ultra good...so would you pay 5000 for a record knowing it´s nothing special musical wise? (don´t know about this one specifically haven´t heard it)

Same with this one. it´s nothing more than a typo /mis print on the label.. it´s identical to vol 2.(which sells for about a 1/10th of the price)

Haha ya thats my website and that copy is mine and it's mint that's why I was wondering if anyone ha ever seen it for sale. I never have.

Ya I know of the bullet dub lp. Never seen it but I knew of one person that had it and he sent me a cdr of it. Never came up for sale.

The edi fitzroy dub lp I seen a couple times on eBay over the years. Bought mine on eBay for around 40 bucks I think. Total killer if you like roofs radios style.

Never heard of this "now generation" blank dub lp

And just fr your info the richie Mac fun lp was released as a music-ism Aquarius volume I forget which one. There is about 4 or 5 different music-ism label and blank label music-isms I only have 3 of them.


Other ones I have never seen fr sale are
A.B.C. Dub (this is the same lp as EE Saw dub but release with a cover on Jamaican press)
Dub in Blood
Zion hill dub has only sold a couple times
I know there's more like up setter rhythm shower and heaps of white label stuff I just found a completely unknown white label roots radical dub lp on the "black music" label one of my favorites

Randy's dub is "ultra good". Take a listen. I was stupid enough to record a cdr of it for someone a few years ago and it has appeared on free Dow load all over the net ever since. I was I guess however smart enough to send him only a 128 mp3 instead of wave though

Oh. It was your page! :lol: It's a great one that I check often.

What about the Boris Gardner dub album called »Ultra Super Dub Vol. 2«? Makes one think there's an even scarcer Vol. 1. Also interesting to hear would be Dirty Harry (Freelimo LP) or Super Boom Super Charge (Well Charge LP). The latter is from what I've understood the same as one of the other Well Charge dub LP's but just a different sleeve.

I've heard some of the "ultra super dub vol 2" and the Frelimo lp and they were both what I would call "instrumental" and not "dub" to me.

The super boom is the same as vital dub but just with a different cover

I'm also gonna go out on a limb an say if someone were to put up a blackboard jungle dub with the word "mint" used anywhere in the description it would also sell for $5000 bucks.

I also heard from a very knoledgeable source way back that Keith Hudson released a couple white label dub lp's that he only pressed 25 to 50 of.

That one was a bit more clearly identified recently :
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=41738

It comes as a blank Musicism LP, with matrixes DSR 6353/DSR 6354 H. CHINLOY.
It appeared a couple of times here and there.

I've got the original in mint condition, bought it at Black Wax in Birmingham back in the day, didn't have Randys Dub on the the label, just a blank impact label, also no cover, came in a This is Augustus Pablo sleeve with Randys Dub written across it in ballpen, think I paid £8 for it. I've also got Dub I, same price, same shop, damn shame when it closed. I'm thinking about selling them.
