Alan Haven enjoyed success with John Barry on the soundtracks to 1960’s film classics including The Knack, Goldfinger, From Russia with Love and critical acclaim for his performances and recordings with jazz drumming supremo Tony Crombie. He further scored a surprise single hit with his recording of Image.
In 1969 and 1971 Haven recorded two albums for CBS, a mix of originals by Haven with his arrangements of covers. All benefiting from the distinctive Haven Lowrey Heritage keyboard sounds which he had been developing throughout the 1960’s. Haven For Sale features jazz trumpeter Maynard Ferguson and direction from Keith Mansfield. St. Elmo’s Fire saw Haven experiment more with the keyboards and its effects, also producing and including more originals than before.
