One True Connection

It's a small jump from The Hues Corporation and their hit "Rock the Boat" to Andrea True Connection and her hit, "More, More, More." This is one of those songs where it's probably better to just listen to it. The video starts out okay, but when the full lights come on and we see Andrea with her Farrah Fawcett hair and 70's cliche outfit and set... it almost comes off as a parody. But the song was no joke -- it peaked at #4 in the fall of 1976 [a very good year].

Andrea True was born in Nashville, but moved to New York after graduating high school. She wanted to be an actress, and did land some work as an extra in a couple of mainstream films. At some point she moved into X-Rated films as she continued to seek out mainstream roles. Andrea True ended up in Jamaica where she appeared in some local commercials. One thing led to another and she ended up writing lyrics to a song her music producer friend [Gregg Diamond] had produced. "More, More, More" was born. Once the song caught on, they produced an album. Two more albums followed, but unfortunately, there were to be no more [or should that be "More, More, More"] hits for Andrea True Connection.
