Issued in 1981 through Elektra Records, the superior, revised and remixed version of Dokken’s European debut ‘Breaking The Chains’ attracted instant acclaim and featured several Dokken classics, including “I Can’t See You”, “In The Middle”, “Seven Thunders” and the full throttle title track itself.
Originally released in 1984, ‘Tooth And Nail’ captivated Dokken’s audience with an array of classy hard rock, big on hooks and full of energy. Songs such as “Into The Fire”, “Heartless Heart” and the power ballad “Alone Again” helped to place Dokken firmly in the big league and resulted in a platinum album.
Produced by British studio wizard Neil Kernon (Queensryche, Kansas, Autograph) and Michael Wagener (Motley Crue, Extreme), 1985’s ‘Under Lock And Key’ is generally regarded as one of Dokken’s best albums, giving rise to a number of classics, including “The Hunter”, “Unchain The Night”, “It’s Not Love” and the chart hit “In My Dreams”.
