Bill Mumy Circular (Global Recording Artists/BCD) Though Bill Mumy (pronounced Moo-Me) is best remembered by many baby boomers such as myself for some of his extremely impressive appearances as a child actor in the early to mid-1960s, on TV shows like Twilight Zone, and as
Will Robinson of Lost In Space, along with nearly countless others, he has continued to act and record music as well; this superb album is only the latest example of Bill's ongoing career as a singer/songwriter. Unlike some celebrity releases Mumy's work could easily stand on it's own as worthwhile and interesting even if he pumped gas, or painted houses for a living. Amongst the fourteen songs here, one can clearly detect the stylistic influence of folks like Tom Petty, John Fogarty, John Prine, Chuck Berry, Richard Thompson, and Neil Young, but it's ultimately Mumy's artistic voice that emerges.

He's a politically aware and slightly angry guy on at least one song (eight years of one's country being run by an incompetent nitwit will do that to you) but mostly this is simply a fine showcase for Bill's considerable skills as a song writer, singer and storyteller. Man of Pride wouldn't have sounded too out of place on a CSN&Y album with a dash of latter day Badfinger tossed into the mix. The Heart's Fantasy is the best song Neil Young and Tom Petty never made together, while Don't Have Anything is simply one of the best love songs I've heard in a long time. The structure of History recalls Brian Wilson's Rio Grand and sections of Smile as well. And Hereby Invited could have been recorded by the Traveling Wilburys. But it's all very=2 0good stuff, uplifting, intelligent and highly accessible mid-tempo mellow melodic rock pop at it's finest.

Bill Mumy has done it again and created another fine album with a little something for all listening ears.

Never Gonna Stop: I had to look at the lyrics first, which are available on Bill's website, but I really understand this song now. It rocks!

You Know You Never Know: Great music and lyrics with a catchy chorus!

Johnny's Gone To Heaven: This a beautiful dedication for the late John Stewart.

Man Of Pride: A beautiful and thoughtful song written by Bill Mumy and Gerry Beckley. It's a very special song.

Care: A very emotional song about caring or trying not to care, but goes back to caring. I love it a lot.

A Deal's A Deal: A fun song that rocks!

The Heart's Fantasy: If one of my favorite Bill Mumy albums, In The Current, could be wrapped up into one song, this is it.

Don't Have Anything: I love listening to this touching and heartfelt story.

Turn Yourself Around: This song has a nice beat and a positive feeling.

The Past Won't Be Denied: The sound of soft vocals and mellow music will work on soothing any troubles away.

History: This is a stellar song and very well done. I love listening to the vocals of Bill Mumy and Sarah Taylor. I can feel that there's two characters with a powerful bond, but with internal conflicts going on at the same time. It's like when one goes up, the other comes down.

Circular Blues: This is the only instrumental track. It sounds relaxing with a bluesy touch.

Hereby Invited: The music and words flow effortlessly out of this song.

I'll Seeya Around: This song is the shortest song on the album. It makes this album have a very classic ending.

Love this album. Bill is a triple threat...singer/songwriter/instrumentalist. Might as well add Engineer and Producer in there as well...he can do it all.

At first I purchased Bill Mumy CDs as a novelty items. Fun and different but definitely an amateur production. But, Bill's albums kept getting better. Bill's last two CDs, The Landlord or the Guest and Circular have been truly professional productions in every sense of the word. Bill's lyrics and music are polished to a fine sheen. The topics are varied and the style ranges from folk to light rock. There is not a note out of place. On many of the songs, Bill Mumy reminds me of Eric Clapton at his best. Except, Bill does not get the kind of recognition that Clapton commands and Clapton never was as good a songwriter as Bill Mumy has become.
