Overview

(Book). For the first time in one volume, here is the best of Relix magazine: the ultimate, spectacular history of the Grateful Dead and their fans. Relix magazine much like the Grateful Dead, the band they captured relentlessly was not just the backdrop for a generation, it was an inspiration. Begun in 1974 as a newsletter to connect Deadheads, the magazine exploded along with the tie-dyed community that embraced it. Relix: The Book is a compilation of the first 27 years of Relix magazine and includes interviews with Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, and all of the Dead's key players. A Deadhead family portrait and psychedelic timecapsule, it also features iconic groups such as the Doors and Phish, along with nearly three decades' worth of brain-melting artwork, full-color covers, and anecdotes from Relix founder Toni Brown, written exclusively for the book. For the global family of Deadheads, old-school hippies, and up and coming jam band fans, Relix: The Book is much more than an anthology, it is an event.

    Relix The Book is a wonderful, one of a kind book for any lover of rock and pop music.

    I found this book hard to put down,and easy to get lost in. "Relix: The Book" is organized in chronological order from its beginnings as a taper newsletter in 1974 all the way through volume 27, the year that it was sold (2000). Each page is an experience, with selections of articles, art, photos and more, all framed in explosions of color. I think that the magazine was mostly black and white, so the addition of color really adds to the experience.
    I highly recommend this book to any fan of the San Francisco Sound, The Late 60's rock, the jam band scene in its infancy and the culure of the "Tribe".
    I LOVED IT!
