Lee Finn on Rose

Lee Finn - Lonesome Road (Rose No.#), 1962

Lee Finn was born Dwain Lee Voorhies in 1926, in Greentop, Missouri. I won't cover his entire biography here, mainly because Shane Hughes has featured him on his highly informative Rockabilly Hall page. But let me say a couple of things about Finn. His life remains, in spite of Hughes' efforts, mostly undocumented. The only interview Finn gave was in the 1970s, when Rockin' Ronnie Weiser was able to track him down.

Today's selection was Finn's last release. Both original composition, I chose to present "Lonesome Road" here. It was released in 1962 on the Rose label, which origin is not known. Finn had recorded previously for Stardust (1957), and Westport (1959). He died in 1999.
