Special Note:  Received in email from album & 45 rpm producer of "More" Creed Taylor, himself:

"Here is a brief note on More (Theme From Mondo Cane) [performed] by Kai:  I had just seen and heard Mondo Cane, in which the song "More" was repeated in at least 10 different ways.  On my way back to my office at Verve, I passed a man-hole where workers were playing a fast instrumental by "The Ventures"... not unlike the style that what was to become the song on Kai's record.  I had at least 3 different versions of the song on my desk.  "More" hadn't become a hit.  All three versions had one thing in common.  They were all ballads.  I asked Claus to come by my office to discuss Kai's upcoming date.  I put Tony's 45 rpm on my turntable and switched to 78 rpm.  Next...'Claus, what do you think?'  The rest of the story is obvious!"
