Released in Germany in 1985 on catalogue number EMI Columbia 1333631 on the vinyl format and then reissued in 1986 EMI Columbia 1333631, also on vinyl but with a different cover. In 1986, the album was also reissued on CD in Germany, on catalogue number EMI Columbia 7462302. This album was released three times on cassette tape in The Netherlands, two of them in 1985, one on catalogue number EMI Columbia 1333634 and the other on catalogue number EMI Columbia 33394-8. The third issue was in 1991 on catalogue number EMI Columbia 1333634, with a different cover. In 1991, the album was also reissued on CD in The Netherlands, on catalogue number EMI Austria 7462302. The tracks which feature "Johnny" at the start of the title are short humorous skits, in which the punchline usually changes the perspective of the previous part from a stereotypical Mafia-style criminal situation into something much more common and everydayish due to words with multiple meanings - e.g. in "Feuer", Johnny asks his boss whether he has fire (for a cigarette), and his boss responds with opening gunfire, and in "Bullen", Johnny warns his boss about "the bulls are coming" (German slang, similar to "the cops are coming"), to which the boss responds "let them in", followed by the noise of a bull stampede
