"First she was Simone, then she was Gitta McKay, but the world will forever remember German singer Gitta Walther by the name Jackie Robinson, thanks to her classic 1976 album I'm Different. By the time she signed a solo deal with Ariola Records in 1975, Walther was already a recognized talent in Europe, having recorded with successful disco acts Silver Convention and Penny McLean while also releasing albums with her group The Love Generation. True to its title, I'm Different gave Walther a chance to show why she was one of the most in-demand singers in European pop during the 1970s. Produced by Fitz Muschler and Paul Birmingham, the album featured a range of styles -- from the bright disco groove of 'Let Me Be' to an understated cover of the Rolling Stones' 'Sympathy for the Devil.' The lead single 'Moving Like A Superstar' became a Top 10 hit on the US Billboard charts, but many remember I'm Different for the infectious drum breakbeat on 'Pussyfooter,' which has been sampled by artists such as DJ Shadow, Eric B. & Rakim and Ultramagnetic MC's. Previously only available to savvy record collectors, Jackie Robinson's stellar I'm Different is presented in brilliant digital sound, restored from the original master tapes, packaged in a five-inch paste-on mini-LP jacket."
