Love Dokken...but i think these live recordings kind of sound like sh*t! Ive got better sounding Dokken'boots i could have given to Don to release.Lynch' fretwork was about the only highlight for me.Don sounded alot better live last time i saw them-than this old show.Pilson's backing vox i could probably do without.

From: Metal T Date: April 3, 2007 at 19:44 they sounded very whiney to the point of being annoying.-----

OUTSTANDING! This could better than Beast from the East! Filled with energy, attitude, BALLS! Metal T, WTF??? sounds like shit?? Your ears are filled with shit man! Best dokken album in the last 15 years!! The unreleased tracks (until now) SMOKES!! 10000/10000

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: May 3, 2007 at 12:52
Very Good album, no es que sea un tremendo album en vivo pero el estilo de Dokken en esa epoca inconfundible es de esas pocas bandas que en un aņo como el 81 tenia un estilo totalmente del 85 u 86 eso ya hace a Dokken la Banda mientras que en ese aņo otros aun tenian ese toque 70's ellos eran pura magia bah sobre Dokken no hay mas que decir simplemente los mas grandes este disco 8.5/10

Exactly how was this recorded LIVE 1981 if Don asks the audience about the "Breaking The Chains" video being on MTV during the intro to that same song? I could be wrong, but isn't that video from 1983 at the earliest? LIVE 1981...Huh?

From: Scorpsfan Date: November 13, 2007 at 22:22 answers the mystery, Jimmy D. Apparently the debut Dokken album was released in 1981 as Breakin' the Chains on Carrere Records (France). This version contains some different mixes (and titles of songs). "Paris is Burning" is called "Paris" and is actually a studio version. The album also contained a song called "We're Illegal" which was later turned into "Live to Rock." Conceivably the video for the title track could have been done before the Elektra release.

Nah,skanxdowntherainbow nothing wrong with these ears buddy.Though i may have had my crack pipe in...After several more listens to 'From Conception' though it is indeed some solid vintage live' stuff-but like i said ive heard some equal and better boots.

It actually sounds pretty good. I picked it up new for .97 at Hastings.
