Country-rock trio Borderline was formed in Woodstock, NY, in the autumn of 1971 by singer/guitarist Jim Rooney (an alumnus of the Cambridge, MA, folk community alongside the likes of Maria Muldaur and Eric Von Schmidt, as well as a onetime talent coordinator for the Newport Folk Festival) in tandem with singer/guitarist siblings Jon and David Gershen, who previously joined forces in the New York City country-rock combo the Montgomeries. Rooney first met Jon Gershen at nearby Bearsville Studios, and with the subsequent addition of brother David, Borderline was soon signed to United Artists' Avalanche subsidiary, calling on neighbors including the Band's Richard Manuel and Garth Hudson, David Sanborn, and Ben Keith to record their 1973 debut LP Sweet Dreams and Quiet Desires. The follow-up Second Album remained unreleased until 2001. ~ Jason AnkenyPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
