Relix: The Book - The Grateful Dead Experience


Publisher: Backbeat Books
Artist: Grateful Dead
Format: Books | History
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 time capsule, it also features iconic groups such as the Doors and Phish, along with nearly three decades' worth of brain-melting artwork, full-colour 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.
