Best of The Decade Released in 1999

Best Of The Decade
Best Of The Decade

Steve Louw has released a compilation of the best tracks off his three albums, and Best Of The Decade is a worthy title and damn fine album. Besides the older hits like ‘Waiting For The Dawn’, Diamonds And Dust’, ‘Slow Dancing’, ‘One Cut With A Knife’, ‘Run To Me’, ‘Wasted’, and ‘Strange Room’, there are two new tracks – ‘Destiny’ and ‘Skin Deep’. Slow Dancing features Don Laka on piano and the collaboration is simply out of this world.

Steve Louw was honoured with the support slot on Rodriguez’ triumphant ’98 SA tour. With Willem Moller (guitar), Russel Taylor (keyboards), Reuben Samuels (drums), Graham Currie (bass) and Tonia Selley (percussion) performing behind him, Big Sky drew nation-wide attention to the solid and stimulating music produced by the band over the decade.
