Sigh.
Bill Mumy's latest is a damn good selection of songs. It is a shame that broadcast radio has lost its soul during the last couple of decades because this cd deserves heavy airplay.

Wonderful voice and songs
I can't believe my little Will Robinson can sing and write songs like this. With Big Ideas is just wonderful. I listened to it about 10 times on MySpace before I came and bought the cd.

It's as professional and touching as anything I've ever listened to. And CD Baby is one of the coolest companies I've ever dealt with online. You put Amazon to shame!

Enjoyed it all immensely.

Laid Back and Very Listenable
I have appreciated Bill's work with America for quite a few years, finally buying one of his CDs helps me appriciate him even more. I definitely see what Dewey and Gerry see in his work. I will definitly work toward increasing my collection of his CDs.

With Big Ideas is the best of Mumy Music!
Bill Mumy has done a first-class, first-rate and exceptional job with this album! It is loaded with fourteen powerful songs and it's very easy to become addicted to any of them or all of them! I honestly can say that I do not ever want to stop listening to these tunes. Each song has incredible lyrics, blended with perfect music and polished with outstanding vocals! It's hard to pick any one favorite, because I love them all. I will say Mystery Road is quite a rocker that could easily become a hit. I think Rising Falls is a very impressive song and it really demonstrates that this is perfect music. From rockin' songs like Mystery Road, Overdue, and A Little Goes A Long Way to mellow songs like The Fire, A Man Of His Word and Missing The Missing. I feel this album has a little something for all musical appetites!

Big Ideas gives us all many ideas!
Bill Mumy's latest CD is probably his best, so far. No Free Parking hits home hard and so does It's Only Forever. Funny, I was just driving on Hollywood Blvd last Sat. and stopped at Cherokee's red light to glance over at an old, abandoned bookstore on my right. So, was that where he took the bus with the barefoot girl? I also loved Fish Out of Water.

Mystery Road and Overdue will rock you and a Man of His Word will inspire you. (not much of that around anymore today...)
Wrapping up his album, Save Me a Seat on the Aisle says it all, we just don't know where or when. Very nice finish.

Excellent music!
I'm no music expert by any stretch of the imagination, but I do know good music when I hear it. Bill Mumy has an extraordinary blend of rock/country/blues sounds that go back to my very roots. For me it's great 70's music morphed into today's world with a large portion of just plain, pure talent. It's not often I purchase a CD that doesn't have at least one song that's not quite up to the rest, but this CD is definitely the exception!

Yes, Bill Mumy is "Will Robinson" from the 60's Lost in Space TV series - along with many other great acting roles - past and present. My only regret is that I spent so many years unaware of his remarkable musical talent.

This is Mr Mumy's most recent album and I encourage all to purchase it. You will not regret it! And while you're at it do a little search of Mr Mumy's other albums. Each one is a musical treat worth much more than it's cost and each is a treasure all should have as well!

Mumy hits it out of the park -again
I loved this cd the first time I listened to it - and with every listen it seems to get even better. The secret, I believe, is that Bill Mumy is an incredibly gifted songwriter. I have all of his solo cd's and I can't think of one tune that isn't worth listening to.

"With Big Ideas" is among Mumy's best. It's got all of, what to me, are his trademarks - solid musicianship, inventive interesting arrangements and great songwritng. What's different, this time around, is that unlike his earlier releases, where Bill played every instrument and sung every vocal, he is augmented by ace session drummer Russ Kunkel and America's Gerry Beckley providing wonderful vocal harmonies, as well as a great pedal steel player.

If you like, as I do, Neil Young, Tom Petty, Springsteen, Dylan, etc, I can't imagine that you wouldn't like "With Big Ideas". This is rock and roll music at it's best - heartfelt, folk based, interesting chord progessions, and melodies that stay with you - songs that speak eloquently of the human condition. No cliches - not so much as a wasted word or a wasted note.

Fantastic CD, I recomend it to all my friends!
The songs were for the most part very well done and well thought out. It's great when you can find music like this that's not 20 years old. I'm telling all my friends about it and I am ordering another for my brother's birthday.If this is Bill's 6th then I must have 1 through 5. Where is all the radio play that these songs should be getting?

PS. I first heard about this CD on Coast to Coast.

Thankyou Bill for this wonderful effort!
