Sommartider is one of Gyllene Tider's most popular songs and it was originally released as a single in 1982 but in connection with Gyllene Tider's 10 - year anniversary in 1989 the single was re-released.
The only way to see the difference between the original release and the re-release is that the new issue of this single has 29/5-89 engraved on the run-off groove and that the adress to the Fan Club is removed from the B-side label.
The song was also released on 12'' and CDS at this time and they both included a remix of the song which is unavailable anywhere else.
Only 6.400 copies of the remix 12'' were made and it was released in both a die-cut picture sleeve and a regular picture sleeve. Only 1.900 copies of the CDS were made and this was Gyllene Tider's first release ever on CD.
In 1995 the single was once again supposed to be re-released (catalogue number 8651772) but the idea was later cancelled. A special promotion CDS was, however, released in only 1.500 copies and they all came in a plastic case without any inlay.
