Annotation

This one is slightly different then http://musicbrainz.org/release/ecf9ce45-16d0-450d-9f4d-958691c0fbd5
The most notable differences are the following:
The FSK logo on the back cover is missing on my version. The remaining logos are arranged in a different way.
The front cover, booklet and CD are the same as far as I can tell from the images.
The FSK logo on the DVD is the newer one, which gets used since December 2008. Therefor the release date has to be sometime after that. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freiwillige_Selbstkontrolle_der_Filmwirtschaft
And this version seems to have different track lengths for some tracks. Although some of the DiscIDs attached to http://musicbrainz.org/release/ecf9ce45-16d0-450d-9f4d-958691c0fbd5 seem to match this one.
