The story goes that porn actress Andrea True did a modeling gig in Jamaica in 1975, but learned after she'd gotten paid that she wasn't allowed to take her money out of the country. To get around this restriction, she hooked up with producer Gregg Diamond, with whom she wrote and recorded the slinky disco single "More More More" in one of Kingston's many studios. Despite the location, the song has no reggae feel to it at all: indeed, thanks to Tom Moulton's dance floor-friendly mix, the sound is that of the birth of Studio 54. True is about as good a singer as she was an actress, yet her unsteady pitch and weak timbre are actually kind of charming in this context; a better singer wouldn't have nearly so much personality, especially on the sighing choruses. Diamond's skill as a multi-instrumentalist comes into particular play on a perfectly placed mariachi-style trumpet solo. "More More More" is pure '70s kitsch and endlessly ripe for parody (The Simpsons' resident bartender did a version called "Moe Moe Moe" nearly 30 years after the original single was recorded!), but there's also something oddly, sweetly endearing about it.
