The Relix Bay Rock Shop, No. 1 is an album by the country rock band the New Riders of the Purple Sage. It was originally distributed as a promotional radio program in 1992, and was also sold in record stores. It includes previously released songs selected from three New Riders albums, interviews with John Dawson, Tom Constanten, and others, and several advertisements (or "spots").[2]

The albums excerpted on The Relix Bay Rock Shop, No. 1 are Before Time Began, Vintage NRPS, and Midnight Moonlight. Like The Relix Bay Rock Shop, No. 1 itself, they were released by Relix Records.

The two songs from Before Time Began were recorded in the studio in 1969 by the original lineup of the New Riders of the Purple Sage, which included Dawson, David Nelson, and three members of the Grateful DeadJerry Garcia, Mickey Hart, and Phil Lesh. The song from Vintage NRPS was recorded live in 1971, and also features Garcia, who played pedal steel guitar for the New Riders. The five songs from Midnight Moonlight were recorded in the studio in 1991.
