Publication date: 1974 to present
A US magazine which was originally a California based Grateful Dead fanzine. From the first issue in late 1974 through to the last issue of 1976 the title of the magazine was Dead Relix. From 1977 onward the title was Relix except for a couple of years in the 1980's when Dead Relix was temporarily reinstated. There have generally been 6 issues each year.
Relix was edited by Jerry Moore from 1974 to 1977, Jeff Tamarkin from 1978 to 1979 and Toni Brown from 1980 to 2002.
Initially the magazine was intended primarily for Grateful Dead taper traders. The musical coverage slowly expanded during the early years to cover other Bay Area music. Hence the change in title in 1977. The range of music continued to expand to take in other genres. From the mid-80's to mid-90's a steady balance was achieved with a Grateful Dead focus remaining at the centre of wide ranging music and non-music content. After the disbanding of the Grateful Dead the jamband scene became the main focus of the magazine.
From 1984 to 2002 Relix ran it's own record label. See the Relix label discography.
