During her heyday as a porn actress in the mid-seventies, Andrea True (Andrea Marie Truden) was hired to appear in a commercial on Jamaica. During her stay there, a political crisis gripped the island, and no one was allowed to leave with any money. Not wanting to lose her pay from the ads, True asked record producer Gregg Diamond to travel to the island and produce a track for her. She would finance it locally, using the money from the commercial. Diamond arrived with More, More, More in his bag, to which True added her vocals. It was later remixed by disco pioneer Tom Moulton. More, More, More ultimately reached #4 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and #5 in the UK in 1976. It was only a minor hit in the Netherlands. True died on November 7, 2011, at a hospital in Kingston, New York. She was 68 years old. The cause was given as heart failure.
