Here's a pretty extensive array of "skid row" country records, those audio dispatches defined by grimly unblinking examinations of the misery, depression and woe that people have to deal with when things in life veer way off track.
None of the songs here actually came from the Salvation Army Skid Row Sounds LP pictured above, but I borrowed the picture from the LP Cover Lover site because it fit the theme of the post so well.Porter Wagoner - Skid Row Joe (3:05)
Hal Ford - Skid Row Blues (3:04)
Merle Haggard - Skid Row (1:54)Freddie Hart - Skid Row Street (2:26)
