This is the best songI've heard of yours to date, Mike. I'm glad you've

worry about them at all.  Perhaps the parts of your voice you dont like 
are the parts the rest of us see as character and flavour :-).

Although I liked Come Alive and Tillatoba a lot, Flowchart or me is way 
ahead of these - and not just because I'm a fan of David Holloway's kit

A simple cheery unpretentious song with something to say and bags of 

Keep it up!
