Rollin's first project was produced in the early 1980's at Celesta Recording Studios in Colorado with the help of Steve Avedis and Dan Diamond. It was done in less than two weeks and was released under Dale's label, Appaloosa Records. Over the next decade Dale's music received airplay in the country genre' (a real stretch for Dale, since he had grown up playing rock and roll!). It also became well known by tourists around the world when the album sold at lodges deep in the Wild & Scenic sections of the Rogue River. What really pleased Dale the most thought was that his songs began to receive airplay across diverse countries and cultures around the globe--as genuine Americana. And, it was those first songs (and their stories) that would later become the core content of his script for live radio theater.
All songs written and composed by Dale Rollins except Loggin' Jack; co-written with Tom Howard.
