Will do. I had huge respect for that rhythm section in its prime. I have Laswell's take on Wailer dub, and, like you, am intrigued to hear a chronologically similar home turf comparison.
You inadvertently sent me off on a bit of a hunt.
There is a Wailers-without-Bob set of instrumentals called "Dub Marley" that was recorded (allegedly) around the time of Rastaman Vibration which comes with dubs. It is comprised of versions of songs from across the Marley back catalogue. Just bought that on iTunes and will report back when I have time to have a listen properly.
There is also a (currently) US only "In Dub Vol 1" which threatens to be the first of many BM&TW dub sets drawn from original b sides and new mixes. It is the new mixes that would worry me (!) but it looks like there is only one of those on this first volume. If that is what you have on order I will be very interested to learn more.
