How Castro helped a porn star

I found this story fascinating.One of my favourite disco songs is More More More by the Andrea True Connection. I heard it on a commercial today and decided to do a bit of research. It turns out that Ms. True was a porn star in New York in the 1970s, as well as a singer of commercial jingles. in 1975, she was in Jamaica doing a commercial when she found out that th U.S had sanctioned Jamaica making it illegal for anyone to leve the country with money earned there because their new president , Michael Manley supported Fidel Castro. Ms. True decided to find a loophole. She had written the lyrics to a song about her time in porn. All she needed was music and a recording studio. So she called her friend Gregg Diamond to travel to Jamaica to collaborate. Together they wrote More, More, More. She took the money from her ad and financed a demo in Jamaica, then took the demo tho the U.S.where it was released and the rest is history.

The song remains in the public ear 40 years later still earning residual money for Ms True’s estate. I believe this makes Andrea True the first porn star to garner entertainment success with her clothes on. This also makes her a great business woman.
