A sublime set of roots, vocal and dubbed out instrumental magic, Close Encounters Of The Third World is a real lost gem in the treasure filed Creation Rebel back catalogue, A true cross-atlantic collaboration. Inital rhythm tracks were laid down in London in 1978, with horns and vocals overdubbed at Channel One in Jamaica before bandleader Crucial Tony returned to London with the tapes for the album to be mixed by a visiting Prince Jammy.

Originally released on pre-On-U Sound label Hitrun, and the second album released by the group chronologically. Unavallable for 45 years, It has been carefully pieced back together, for this new edtion featuring extended 12 discorix versions of "Beware" and "Natty Conscience Free", re-cut by Frank Merritt at The Carvery, Indudes new Sleevenotes by reggae scholar David Katz that tells the story of the album in full, plus download card.
