Billy Bacon and the Forbidden Pigs

Pig Latin (Triple X)and Big Sandy and the Fly-Rite Boys
Night Tide
(Hightone Records)

You're not going to find such "crossover" moments as are enshrined on Pig Latin and Night Tide televised on the Grammys, unless a big wind knocks this year's horses completely off the tote board. But albums like these are reminders that for every bull-size "cultural revolution" the industry tries to sell, there are dozens of smaller bands pulling the cultural yoke year after year, in the service of giving you listening pleasures you won't find on cable. Give these a spin.

Sing a Sahm song: Billy Bacon (left) salutes the late, great Sir Douglas on Pig Latin.

The Tide is high: Big Sandy and Co. offer a stewpot full of goodies on their latest.

And on second thought, show this review to your Ricky Martin-listening acquaintances, should you happen to keep company with anybody like that. God knows, they need a hit of this stuff even more urgently than you.
