2016 two CD collection from the veteran Scottish singer/songwriter. Metamorphosis is a comprehensive compilation of singles, sessions and embryonic experiments recorded by Paul Haig between 1981 and 1982, spanning the end of cult band Josef K and the beginning of his polished pop solo career. Disc One gathers together various singles recorded for Crepuscule in 1982, including 'Running Away',' Justice', 'Blue For You' and the EP 'Swing In 82', the latter a bold foray into Sinatra territory. The extended 12" versions of 'Running Away' and 'Justice' appear here on CD for the first time, along with compilation tracks such as 'Mad Horses' and 'Christiania', and rare demo versions of 'Luck' and 'On This Night of Decision'. Disc Two features several projects recorded as Rhythm of Life, including four tracks recorded live on a Crepuscule package tour in February 1982, and two rare RoL singles on which Paul collaborated with infamous artist Sebastian Horsley, and fellow Edinburgh musician Stephen Harrison. Also included are all eight tracks from Drama, a DIY cassette of experimental electronica issued by Paul in 1981.
