memories of the ’70s – More More More by Andrea True Connection

File:More, More, More.jpgA disco hit in 1976, this one hit wonder has become a classic for the clubs to this day: More More More by Andrea True Connection.

Written by Gregg Diamond, the song was performed by Andrea True, a porn actress.

True, who became well-known in certain circles after appearing in numerous adult films, was hired by a Jamaican businessman to appear in real estate television commercials.

After spending time on the island to complete the commercials, a political crisis in 1975 prevented True from leaving the island with her earnings. She invited producer/writer Diamond to come to the island, where she financed the recording of her first album.

True, who wanted to move into a recording career, recorded More More More, with Buddah Records releasing the song as a dance single to disco clubs in winter 1975, and by February 1976, was released as a radio single.

Although a solo artist, she named herself Andrea True Connection to differentiate herself from her porn career to a singing career.

The song became even more popular with its release to the mass market, hitting #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts and charting top 10 in Canada, UK, Germany and Ireland.

True continued her recording career, with follow up hits You Got Me Dancing and What’s Your Name, What’s Your Number, both on her second album White Witch.

But for the hardcore disco fans, More More More became a popular song of the nightly soundtrack, a popular inclusion in future period movies and was covered by Bananarama, Rachel Fox, Dannii Minogue and Samantha Fox.
