Jove “Into The Shrine” 1977 US Private Psych Folk

Jove “Into The Shrine” 1977 US Private Psych Folk
"David Jove (born David Sniderman), December 14, 1942 - September 26, 2004, was a Canadian director, producer and writer, particularly of underground and alternative music-themed films. After spending the mid-1960s in London and being a part of the Rolling Stones' circle of friends, he moved to Los Angeles , where he would be based for the rest of his life. 
He may have been best-known as the creator of the early 1980s music program, New Wave Theatre , which gained notoriety in the early days of cable television. It was shown as part of USA Network's late night weekend variety show, Night Flight hosted by Peter Ivers. 
"New Wave Theatre" was co-written by longtime Jove collaborator and former Billboard editor Ed Ochs, who also wrote the liner notes to Jove's two records, "Sweeter Song" and "Into the Shrine" (co-writing "Never Say Never" on "Shrine"). Ochs also co-wrote Jove's only feature film, "Stranger Than Love" (originally "I Married My Mom!"), and, with Jove, formed one half of Oxygen, a studio band that fused rock and disco and in 1979 recorded an EP of six original Jove/Ochs songs, "The Bones of Hollywood". 
Jove met music video producer Paul Flattery at a 1983 New York Billboard Video conference. They formed an association and that resulted in the music video "Stop In The Name Of Love" for the reformed English band The Hollies , with Graham Nash and the TV show "The Top," which came about after Peter Ivers' murder. In the immediate aftermath of Iver's killing, Jove was offered help by producer/director/writer Harold Ramis , a friend of Ivers. Jove, Ramis and Flattery created and made "The Top" for KTLA. The show was a mixture of live music, videos (this was pre-MTV) and humor. Cyndi Lauper performed "Grils Just Want To Have Fun" and "True Colors," The Hollies performed "Stop In The Name Of Love" and The Romantics performed "Talking In Your Sleep" and "What I Like About You". Guest stars included Rodney Dangerfield, Bill Muray and Dan Aykroyd . The host was Chevy Chase , who--dressed as a "punk" of that era--got into a physical altercation with an audience member during the opening monologue. He immediately left the taping. The producers then got Andy Kaufman to fill in for Chase and recorded the host segments at a separate, later session. It was to be the last professional appearance by Andy Kaufman before his death. 
"The Top" aired on Friday January 27, 1984 at 7 - 8pm. It scored a 7.7% rating and a 14% share. This represented a 28% rating increase and a 27% share increase over KTLA's regularly scheduled "Happy Days/LaVerne & Shirley." 
Jove was married to actress/comedienne Lotus Weinstock. Their daughter is actress/musician Lili Haydn.....................
