Miss Piggy
“Aerobique Exercise Workout Album”
Warner Bros. #23717-1
1982

From the Back Cover:

“Many People come up to moi, out of le bleu, to inquire how moi manages to remain so slimme and trimme in spite of moi’s busy, demanding life as an international superstar. How is it, they wondeur, that I can possess such a fabulous physique, what with all the lavish brunches in ritzie hotels with moi’s frog… the glamorous garden parties with those teensy sandwiches with the crusts cut off… Surely, they insist (people do get a little pushy sometimes), surely moi must have a secret.”

WHAT’S UP WITH PROF. VELLANOWETH??

For some reason, I’ve had a deluge of emails about this exercise record from Mexico. What’s the deal? Here’s just a few:

Hi There, my name is Luis and we have been tasked to find an album from Profesor Federico Vellanoweth. I see in your site that there is an album called “Gimnasia en Su Hogar”. We are looking for a part called “Ejercicio 7″ and was wondering if it is in the Album “Gimnasia en Su Hogar”. Can you please let us know? Also, if it is possible could you give us information on the Label that put the album out and year.
– Luis

Hi My name is Alin, I’m live in Mexico, Guadalajara. How can I obtain one copy of your disc?”Gimnasia en su Hogar”. Because I need replace this disc for my mother. I broke one a few days ago. So, I like that you answer my question or tell me if I can buy this thing in another site. Thank you.Note: I’m not very well with English Language. Sorry
–Alin

I am looking for more information about a record that you have called Professor Vellanoweth…… Who do I have to contact to get more information such as who owns the masters for this disk…..what label is putting it out ect……
–Tom

I’m wondering if you have any information on where I can obtain any Vellanoweth exercise records that you have posted on your web site. Thanks in advance.
– Dagoberto

I wonder if u can sell me in mp3 format the one called Federico Vellanoweth,u only have 40 seconds, thanks please write me back.Cause my mother when she was young she make excersice with it, and now she told me if i can find a copy she wants to make excersice with it.
– Rosario

THE ANSWER??
Don’t ask me why but I was looking for the origins of the Vellanoweth last name and I found your site.
The reason people ask you about this record ‘Gimnasia en su hogar’ is because the band Kinky sampled Ejercicio 7 for once of their songs included in their first album(released in 2001 I think). Hope it helps.
– Jorge

ANOTHER ANSWER??

I had to laugh at your remark on the mail you’ve received from Mexico about the Vellanoweth record. Let me explain. Way long before exercise became the industry it’s become, they showed this exercise program on Mexico City TV, in the 60s (black and white TV), and many of our mothers worked out to it. Interestingly, many of the routines this Vellanoweth guy had are now used in Pilates. Since there was no commercialism, the record you have is quite the little jewel, as I doubt there are many of them around.

Hello,
A friend saw Texersize on your site and emailed it to me. I produced that album. It seems to be in good company with the other selections you have in that category. It was fun to make and is fun to listen to and participate with. BTW there are some fantastic and famous Texas musicians performing on this album. Texersize, the exercise of Texas!
