From Big Sky’s debut Album, Waiting for the Dawn, this lively and powerful track was a instant success.
Steve Louw formed a new band, Big Sky, in 1990 and released Waiting for the Dawn that same year. The epic and powerful debut album featured artists from SA and the USA, and set a new standard for SA rock. Louw was back, less abrasive, more thought provoking, and producing a music that stood on its own, both here and abroad.

ANR released two hit albums, The Heart’s the Best Part (1984) and The Killing Floor (1986), their gritty, bluesy, rock-and-roll sound firmly establishing Steve as a star on the SA music scene.
