GEORGE LYNCH-SACRED GROOVE

Sacred Groove is a George Lynch album from 1993. It contains a diverse range of tracks from different styles of music, for example, the instrumental Tierra Del Fuego has a significant Latin feel to it. There are four instrumentals and six songs on the album. A notable instrumental on the album is “Love Power from the Mama Head“, which shows off much of Lynch’s unique playing style.

 DOKKEN-ONE LIVE NIGHT

One Live Night is a 1995 semi-acoustic live album by heavy metal band Dokken. The reunited Dokken recorded the album during their 1995 tour. The album went virtually unheard at the time of its release. MTV had no interest in any Hair Metal, so Dokken decided to do their own “unplugged” album. This intimate performance included versions of “Tooth and Nail”, “Into the Fire” and “Alone Again”, as well as covers of the Beatles’ “Nowhere Man” and Emerson, Lake & Palmer’s “From the Beginning”.

One Live Night was also released on DVD.

Personnel

  • Don Dokken - vocals, guitar
  • George Lynch - lead and rhythm guitars
  • Jeff Pilson - bass guitar, lead vocals on “Just Got Lucky”
  • Mick Brown - drums, lead vocals on “Tooth and Nail”

DOKKEN-DYSFUNCTIONAL

Dysfunctional is the fifth studio album by  Dokken, released in 1995. It was the band’s first release after reuniting in 1993. Although the album entered the chart respectably at #47 at a time when 1980s hard rock and heavy metal had largely declined, sales quickly dropped off and were not enough to reach gold RIAA certification. According to Don Dokken, the album sold around 400,000 copies.[2]

The song “Too High to Fly” was released as a single from the album and was a minor hit. As of 2009, it is the only song from the post-1980s portion of the bands’ back catalogue that is still performed live, albeit only occasionally.

Personnel

  • Don Dokken - vocals
  • George Lynch - lead and rhythm guitars
  • Jeff Pilson - bass guitar
