Let p be a an odd prime and let G be a ﬁnite p-group with cyclic commutator subgroup G′. We prove that the exponent and the abelianization of the centralizer of G′ in G are determined by the group algebra of G over any ﬁeld of characteristic p. If, additionally, G is 2-generated then almost all the numerical invariants determining G up to isomorphism are determined by the same group algebras; as a consequence the isomorphism type of the centralizer of G′ is determined. These claims are known to be false for p = 2.
