DOKKEN – The Lost Songs (1978-1981) – LP – Vinyl


A fair selection of the treasure on “The Lost Songs: 1978-1981” are from these early European days. “Felony” carries a thuggish fuzz-coated riff -think early VAN HALEN in really greasy embroidered denims, while “Day After Day” showed that Don could pen a radio-slaying ballad.

The writing and creation of “The Lost Songs: 1978-1981” are further tribute to enduring early days of struggle in both Germany and L.A., Don would return to L.A. for a spell after those brief European gigs, and he worked with Juan Croucier on material, including perhaps the truest view of DOKKEN‘s then-future “Hit And Run”, which incredibly did not end up on the eventual “Breaking The Chains” release. From the sunbaked SoCal hook of “Step Into The Light” to the furious, fledgling, late-Sunset Strip sound of “Back In The Streets”, “The Lost Songs: 1978-1981” shows Don in his unfettered early days of balls-out attitude, qualities doubtless forged in the sheer nature of the adventures undertaken in writing, recording and deciding Europe was the place to keep cutting his teeth.

“The Lost Songs: 1979-1981” not only shares that magic with the fans, it gives them the final, vital and undeniably missing (until now) early album in the DOKKEN collection.
