For Those Who Think Young is divided into two halves, with one side each of studio big-band recordings and similar live recordings made in 1961. Sommers begins with "A Lot of Livin' to Do" from Bye Bye Birdie (her version of "One Boy" from the same musical was her first charting hit) and covers a dozen standards and show tunes such as "'Round Midnight," "Blues in the Night," and "I Feel Pretty." The live tracks are beautifully recorded and the performances accomplished (if a little cutesy at times), but this adult-oriented vocal music is far removed from "Johnny Get Angry," the teen hit with which she is most strongly associated. For Those Who Think Young didn't chart and produced no hits, but it does reveal, in a "serious" context, the capabilities of an artist often considered a female teen idol.
