"Potbelly Pigs Sing Your Favorite Tunes"

THE JINGLE BELLIES ALBUM was conceived by musician Bobby Breaux in 1994 after his wife Susie played a tape containing sounds made by co-worker Tina Walker's pet potbellied pig, Rebel. Although the original intent was to have a few laughs while listening to pig flatulence, the other emanations such as grunts, snorts, burps, and slurps captured on tape while Rebel was eating caught the attention of Bobby's ears. Hearing that the sounds had musical possiblities, he recorded a few of the pig noises into a digital sampler and programmed them to squeal and grunt the melody of "Old MacDonald."
Lunch hour the next day at Susie's office was anything but normal. She played a cassette of the tune for some of the company personnel and after witnessing a considerable amount of belly-laughing by the group she immediately telephoned her husband. Susie encouraged him to do more with the idea seeing that everyone at the office thought it was a hoot. Since chipmunks, cats and dogs have had successful Christmas albums, then why not pot-bellied pigs? Hence, THE JINGLE BELLIES were born, and for the next four and a half months the music studio in the Breaux household "oinked" morning, noon, and night.
THE JINGLE BELLIES CHRISTMAS ALBUM is a diverse collection of arrangements of some well known Holiday favorites. Below is a list of song titles and credits from the recording:
