Relix: The Book by Toni Brown

Many of us DeadHeads grew up with Relix magazine. It was an essential way to stay connected with the Grateful Dead scene. Believe it or not, we did not have Facebook to help us communicate with each other or Twitter for us to instantaneously get the set list from the show. As Toni Brown says in her interview on Shakedown Stream, Relix magazine was started as a place for tapers and Deadheads to connect with each other. It was started by fans - for the fans.

I would describe the new Relix Book as a coffee table book. It is jam packed with material from the first 30 years of Relix put together chronologically into one historical document - an Archivist's dream. I highly recommend this book as a Christmas gift for your favorite DeadHead friend, cousin, brother, Aunt, or ...whomever. Their memory banks will be jolted into a sweet flashback (all very legal of course). You can order the Relix: The Book here as well as Toni Brown and Ed Munson's new CD State of Mind. You can also listen to part 1 and part 2 of my interview with Toni on mvyradio.com's Shakedown Stream.
