In a country like South Africa, with it's small White population, specialization in the Arts is virtually impracticable. Many a musician can be found clerking behind a counter or selling insurance policies by day, in order to augment the small income generally derived from professional playing.
Such is not the case with Albie Louw. His diverse interests spring from the innate ability of a versatile artist, and those who have heard him singing Opera, conducting an Orchestra, acting in a play or playing piano or piano-accordion, would find it hard to believe that he has not specialized particularly in any of these activities. Albie Louw's piano playing needs hardly any introduction to the South African public. He has established himself as one of the country's finest, through the medium of Radio, live entertainment appearances and numerous long playing record albums.
If any question as to the position occupied by Albie as a pianist should arise, this, his latest selection, must put Albie Louw in the nation's top bracket of interpreters of popular music. His piano playing is tasty and swinging, or full and sensitive, as each tune demands, and while one detects a trace of Cavallaro influence on the technique side, this does in no way detract from Albie's individuality.
From the first chunky, rhythmic rendition of "PATRICIA" to the last sweetly swinging arpeggios of 'SWINGIN' SHEPHERD BLUES this album reflects Albie's good taste and flair for musical presentation. Whether you like 'em rockin' - like his high-octane 'MA" - Latin -"RETURN TO ME" - or sweetly sentimental like 'TWILIGHT TIME" - here's a feast of good entertainment.
A word of praise too for the excellent rhythm accompaniment supplied by REGARDO BORNMAN, Jnr., Guitarist, TEDDY BOWLES, Drums and BERRY TAYLOR, Bass.
These tunes have been carefully selected with an ear to lasting popular appeal, and whether you're going to need music for a lively dance session at home, or for your own listening pleasure - this is it. I can sincerely recommend this album to all who endeavour to maintain a high standard of record collection. - MERVYN JOHN

In 'n land soos Suid-Afrika, met sy klein wit bevolking, is spesialisasie in die Kuns hoogs onprakties. Veral in die musiekwêreld word 'n uitstekende musikant dikwels bedags as klerk agter 'n toonbank aangetref of hy verkoop assuransiepolisse om sy klein inkomste uit die musiek aan te vul.
Maar dit is nie die geval met Albie Louw nie. Sy verskeidenheid belangstellings spruit uit die aangebore bekwaamheid van die veelsydige kunstenaar en as u hom gehoor het as operasanger, as dirigent van 'n orkes, as toneelkunstenaar op die verhoog of as virtuoos voor die klavier of op die trekklavier, is dit moeilik om te glo dat hy nie in een van hierdie bedrywighede spesialiseer nie. Hy doen sommer almal!
Albie Louw se klavierspel verg beswaarlik enige voorstelling by die Suid-Afrikaanse publiek. Hy is alreeds gevestig as een van ons beste pianiste by wyse van die radio, persoonlike optredes en talle lankspeelplate.
As Albie se posisie as pianis nog enigsins betwyfel word, sal hierdie opname, sy jongste, hom voer na die toppunt van ons land se vertolkers van populêre musiek. Sy klavierstyl is smaakvol en sprankelend of toonryk en sensitief soos wat die betrokke wysies dit vereis en terwyl daar spore is van die Cavallaro-invloed in sy tegniek, doen dit geen af breuk aan Albie se indiwidualiteit nie.
Vanaf die treffende, ritmiese vertolking van ,,PATRICIA" tot by die soete, sprankelende arpeggio's van ,,SWINGIN' SHEPHERD BLUES, reflekteer hierdie album Albie se verfynde smaak en aanslag vir musikale aanbieding. Of u nou van lewendige musiek hou - soos sy hoogbelaaide ,,MA" - van die Latynse kleur soos in ,,RETURN TO ME" of dan wel soet en romanties soos in ,,TWILIGHT TIME, hier is 'n fees van uitstekende vermaaklikheid.
Lof word ook verdien deur die treffende ritme-agfergrond wat verskaf word deur REGARDO BORNMAN, jnr., kitaar, TEDDY BOWLES, dromme en BERRY TAYLOR, bas.
Die wysies op hierdie opname is versigtig gekies met die oog op blywende gewildheid en of u nou ookal musiek verlang vir 'n lewendige dansie tuis of dan wel vir suiwer luistergenot - hier is dit. Ek kan hierdie opname hartlik aanbeveel by almal wat daarop uit is om 'n hoe standaard in hulle diskoteek te handhaaf. - omslag

Albie Louw's brilliant piano playing on his previous long play recording "ln Tune" with South Africa, Volume I (H.M.V. JDLP 10003) was immediately acclaimed by thc public, and enthusiastically received by all lovers of popular music. ''In Tune" with South Africa proved to be so successful that it has become a sheer necessity to present a further selection of popular tunes of today as interpreted by the nimble fingers of Albie Louw. lt is therefore a real pleasure to present herewith "In Tune" with South Africa, Volume 2.
In making this new selection, Albie has again chosen tunes of the moment which have become international favourites. Included are bright, sparkling tunes like Just Walking In The Rain, Singing The Blues, Butterfly, nostalgic melodies like Hasta Luego, More, A Woman In Love, and production numbers from successful films like High Society, Anastasia and S'Wonderful. Albie has not neglected to include works by our own popular composers in order to preserve the truly international flavour of the music he has selected. Our own songs are rapidly becoming known throughout the world, as for instance Zambesi which achieved popularity, not only in America and England, but also in countries like Iceland, Norway, Denmark, Egypt, Australia, Germany etc. Nico Carstens and Anton de Waal are represented by Lovin' In Springtime (Lus Om Te Lewe), and they also collaborated with a new and very talented young South African, Louis Combrinck to produce Who Made You So Wonderful. Albie Louw is himself a very successful song-writer, and on this recording he has joined forces with Louis Combrinck to compose the attractive song Love Is A Gambling Game.
Since recording Klawerkaperjolle (H.M.V. JDLP 10002) and the first volume of "[n Tune" with South Africa, Albie Louw has been on a most successful visit to England. He was a member of Dr. Erik Chisholm's operatic company who were invited to tour Britain and present modern operas and the works of South African composers. Albie played the role of Mr. Koffner in The Consul by Menotti, and also gave recitals of songs by Dr. Chisholm and "Dichterliebe" by Schumann. The English critics said: "Schuman's 'Dichterliebe' had a most interesting and enjoyable performance py Albie Louw. His command of colour and of gradations, his impeccable enunciation and his extremely sensitive musicianship made this performance something out ofthe ordinary". This critique can be applied with equal justification to his piano playing on all his recordings.
During the Mozart Festival in Cape Town, Albie distinguished himself in the opera Don Giovanni, and elicited the following enthusiastic press review: "Versatile Albie Louw as the comic bass, Leporello, scored a triumph throughout the evening, particularly in his Madaniva Aria, and by his fooling generally. Some of the best acting came from Albie Louw."
Albie is certainly one of the most gifted and talented young men in South Africa today. He is equally proficient and at home whether singing in opera, acting in a stage play, playing the piano or the accordion, interpreting classical or popular music, conducting an orchestra, or composing.
As a person, Albie Louw has an enormous zest for living and inexhaustible vitality, a ready smile, fine sense of humour, entertaining and refreshing in company, and these commendable qualities are all happily reliected in his brilliant piano playing. His sensitive and accurate ear for music has made him a perfectionist, and this is brilliantly illustrated by his flawless, tasteful and scintillating musicianship on this, the first 12 inch long play record to be produced in South Africa by one of our most talented artists and musicians. - omslag
