On his website djallyn.org, DJ Ally posted the following about "Oh Very Young" on April 30, 2009:

Suzanne Lynch worked as a session musician until she became a regular part of Cat Stevens' vocal group and appeared on several of his albums. The first song Lynch did for Stevens was "Oh Very Young" in which she sang the solo line and the haunting background melody.[3]
