"Johnny Get Angry" was one of the great teen pop hits and the biggest for Joannie Sommers, but most of her recordings were in more of a mature vein -- pop in the old-fashioned sense. This straight CD reissue of her 1962 album has a mixture of both styles. The title track and "Since Randy Moved Away" sit alongside "(Theme From) A Summer Place" and "A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square," giving listeners a look at both sides of Sommers. Her minor hit version of "One Boy" from Bye Bye Birdie is also included among the dozen tracks here. With a playing time just under a half-hour, Johnny Get Angry could have been presented as a two-fer or with bonus tracks, but fans will be glad to finally have a legitimate reissue of her original album. ~ Greg Adams
