No Ghosts here - only Greatness!
Just discovered Bill Mumy and his music - where have I been???
So I am trying hard to catch up! I thought I would get the best sample by buying this CD but it only makes me hungry for more! His lyrics unlock raw emotion (Woe, the Lover's Tune, Done me Little Good) and riveting haunting memories we all share of love lost. Ghosts? Maybe, but some great ones!

These are a few of my favorite Ghosts
Ghosts is the very first Bill Mumy CD I bought when I went to see his band The Jenerators in 2003. Little did I know how many times I would be listening to this CD. The first four songs on this CD immediately captured my attention - Always Open, She'll Never Know, The Climb and You Were There. Soon I noticed a couple of other tracks, It's Not The Same and The Recalcitrant Princess, that I started liking a whole lot! Not very long after that I just gave up on picking my favorites and fell in love with each and every song on this CD - all 19 of them. I highly recommend this album for anyone to start their Mumy Music collection. Ghosts is a very nice reflection of Bill's other albums. 19 stars for this one and counting!

I'll make this review short and to the point. Okay. When I think of Bill Mumy and music I think of "Fish Heads". Yes, roly-poly "Fish Heads". In my mind it was Bill's claim to fame in the music world. Remember MTV "when it was good"? Well, it turns out that there's much more to Bill's music endeavors than a novelty song and video. And listen: The guy can pick a guitar.

My first thought when listening to "Ghosts", Bill Mumy's best-of compilation, was Cat Stevens- a mellow cat Stevens. Right when I figured I had Bill pegged, a faster paced tune had a little more of an Eric Clapton sound. Wait. Doesn't "Can't Win This Game" (song #10 out of 20 tunes on this CD) sound like Bob Dylan? Are these the ghosts that haunt this recording? Yes, Bill definitely shows his 60's roots here. Nothing "roly-poly", just slow rock and roly (sorry!).

"Ghosts" is deep and inspired, and if ever there was an album with that "late night" feel, this is it. Images of misty moonlight and long stretches of lonely highway kept creeping into my mind. Say, planning a long overnight road trip? Bring this CD along. Call it reflective. Call it shadowy or far-away feeling. Maybe even call it "ghostly".

Oh, and did I mention the guy can pick a guitar..?

Johnny Heering "trivia buff"

He really is an excellent musician.
This "best of" CD features songs from the four albums Bill Mumy released between 1997 and 2001, plus previously unreleased songs recorded in 2003. Bill wrote all the songs himself, and played (almost) all the instruments (his daughter played vibes and marimba on one song). This is the serious Bill Mumy, not the goofy guy from Barnes & Barnes who did "Fish Heads". He really is an excellent musician. Most of the songs are thoughtful ballads, but he does throw in a few more upbeat tunes. If you only know Bill from his acting on sci-fi shows, or from Barnes & Barnes, give this CD a listen and hear his sensitive side.

Ghosts - The Best of Billy Mummy
My second CD and its fantastic! I love the vocals and guitar. This folksy rock is right up my alley and I'm so impressed with Mr. Mummy's multi-talented style. Being a 54 year old TV viewing fan of his TV work I am looking forward to some more TV series work. I'd love to catch one of your concert one of these days! My 2008 New Years wish. Best of luck to you Mr. Mummy! Keep up the good work with your music, it's the best orginal sound I've heard in many years.

I just recently discovered that Bill Mumy is a musician, as well as an actor and, after hearing excerpts of some of his music on his website, bought 2 of his CDs within a couple of weeks. Ghosts is extremely good. Bill is an excellent songwriter and musician. I highly recommend this CD.
