Thanks Wavedancer for this gem.

BTW from which release comes the track Sommerside?

Knew about the album and the 12" of The Storm, but was unfamiliar with Sommerside.

Hi Rissan,

when I was looking for the album "Pictures of Reality" I contacted the former singer of the band. As there were no copys left for sale he gave me a link where I could download the material and "Sommerside" came with it, so I think it might have been previously unreleased..

The actual track ''Sommerside'' is ''I Miss You'' and ''I Miss You'' is ''Side By Side'' and actual B-side from the single The Storm.
