Sunday Songs*6*

A kooky, retro-tastic bunch of songs for ya....

In an effort to find out more about the singer of the More,More,More track I discovered a rather amazing story about Andrea Truman....taken from wicki, read below:

During her heyday as a porn actress, around 1975, True was hired by a real estate business in Jamaica to appear in their commercials. During her stay in Jamaica, a political crisis gripped the island, and no one was allowed to leave with any money. Not wanting to lose the pay she had earned from the real estate ads, True asked her
friend, record producer Gregg Diamond, to travel to the island and produce a track for her, which she would finance locally using that money. Diamond arrived with a composition in hand, to which True added her vocals. The result of their collaboration was "More, More, More" which became a favorite in discos and nightclubs. It ultimately reached No. 4 on the US Billboard Hot 100
