Never heard of this band either, seems that this CDBaby has a great deal of obscure material.

The Drivin' Dynamics CDs are available from a lot of places - I got mine from ebay. Randy only sings lead on two songs.

If anyone wants to hear these two songs, I can email them, or send them to Soda to put on here.

I was listening to this tonight and trying to figure out which songs he sings lead on. Does anybody know?

"You're So Fine" is obviously Randy. I think the other one is probably "Kansas City."

Ok, got external confirmation that I was right and those are the two songs Randy sings lead on. Just in case anyone else was curious! By the way, they're available to purchase as single songs if you want off of Amazon.com.

I don't believe this has been posted. Since it relates to Randy's first real band, I thought I would share it here. I especially appreciate this:

The Dynamics were formed in late 1961 when Larry Soto, new to the Scottsbluff-Gering area of western Nebraska, made contact with Richard Rohnke, John Ankony, and 15-year old bass player Randy Meisner. As was the case in many fledgling rock bands of that era, the nameless band worked up mostly instrumental covers of the day, delving into only a few vocal covers. Meisner covered the popular “Kansas City” with Soto singing some Chuck Berry & Ritchie Valens covers.
Even at 15, Randy Meisner had the best voice in the band, was fun to be with, had dedication and a burning desire to “be somebody”. The band played their first gig in October of 1961 at a private birthday party and played their first public dance at Scottsbluff High School later in the month.

Saw this photo from 1961 on the Drivin Dynamics Facebook page. Is this Randy in the pic, holding the bass guitar? The caption seems to indicate it is. This one is new to me.
