the Dynamics

Youngstown, early 1960s

Liban records was based in Cleveland, but had a roster than was mostly from Youngstown. The Dynamics were likely from the greater Youngstown area, although we don't really know anything about them.

They had one 45 on Liban. The A side "Blind Date" was written by Tony Achladis, who was from Warren. His name is mispelled Aehladis on the record. The flip side is "If I Give My Heart To You", a pop standard. The record was a local hit, especially in Pittsburgh where the record became part of the Pittsburgh oldies canon.

It's possible there is a connection between these Dynamics and the Dynamics who backed Mickey Farrell, from nearby Farrell, PA.. 

"Blind Date" was recorded again in 1965 by Kenny and the Kasuals from Warren.
