'The Metsers Songbook'
Publisher unknown 1987
Paul brought out this book after leaving NZ and working as a professional folk singer in the UK for several years. The book, complete with melodies, lyrics, chords, illustrations and photographs, contains about 50 of his songs, including the NZ folk standards Farewell To The Gold, The Seal Children and The Swag and the Shiner.
For those who revel in such guitar tunings as DADGAD or CGCGCD, or finely crafted songs with ecological spirituality, this should be a goldmine.
For copies of the songbook, or just to send Paul cheery NZ folkie greetings, write or phone:
