Alka's first album had 3 versions - different artwork and concept.

First edition was released in 1993. by CroatiaTon only on cassette - and it was titled "Winnetou". Between tracks were little concept pieces - and cover picture was taken by famous art photographer Stephan Lupino. This is only edition that includes cover of "Sa Druge Strane Jastuka" (Bajaga I Instruktori) (Bajaga was ex Alka's boyfriend) - and it is re-titled "Sa Druge Strane Vremena", but the rest of the lyrics are same as original.

Second edition was released by CroatiaTon on CD (I am not sure for cassette) in the beginning of 1994. after huge success of song "Laži Me" and it was titled "Laži Me!". Different cover was used and little music pieces were deleted. But few new songs were added because of CD duration including few English versions. And few songs were previously released on EP cassette, released for HRT Orfej label.

Third and final edition was released by Lobel Naklada on CD & cassette by the end of 1994. - again, after huge success of new song "Od Kad Te Nema", released in the summer of 1994. - many songs from second edition were deleted and only 10 songs were left. This edition was called "Laži Me" and new artwork was presented (front picture was taken from second edition's back inlay).
