Classic Porn Star, Disco Singer Andrea True Dies Aged 68

Seduction of Lyn CarterClassic adult film legend Andrea True passed away in Kingston, New York on November 7, 2011 at age 68. Andrea — who also performed under the aliases Andrea Travis, Inger Kissen, Ida King, and Singh Low — was born in Nashville, Tennessee and first appeared in Scandinavian adult films in the 1960s. She made her first American XXX films in the late 1960s and skyrocketed to fame with the rise of porno chic in the 1970s, becoming such a big star that she successfully found mainstream fame.

Today, Andrea is still the only porn star to have a hit reach the top 10 Billboard charts. In 1975, Andrea was filming a commercial in Jamaica when she recorded a demo of a song called “More, More, More.” Remixed and released in 1976, the song became one of the disco era’s most iconic hits, even reaching number four on the Billboard charts. It has been licensed for film use and frequently sampled (most notably in Len’s 1990s hit “Steal My Sunshine”). Andrea True is currently the only porn star to have ever had such a successful hit song.

Andrea specialized in playing the mature, experienced woman in her roles, being the sexually dominant performer when the part called for it. Seduction Of Lyn Carter features what is arguably Andrea’s best performance in the United States, as a frustrated housewife.
