I have a slightly different release of this. The Odeon logo of my release is not above the black frame on the front cover but on the left blue part above the track listing. On the upper right corner it has the 038-CRY 04 207 code and beneath it, the Crystal logo. The right society is GEMA so it is definitely German. The Side A runout groove has "04207-A2" stamped, Side B has "04207B-1". Should I make a new release?
