Photo conveys essence of Resale Records in wake of death of owner Eric Teisberg: There has been outpouring of reaction following the death of Eric Teisberg, who owned and operated Resale Records on the city’s East Side for nearly 40 years. The shop, housed in a Trachte building at 2401 Commercial Ave., was home to a wide collection of vintage record albums displayed in wooden boxes, plastic bins and hanging from the walls and ceiling. Some were his own, others were being sold on consignment. Teisberg, who was 61, died Sunday of an apparent heart attack outside the nearby Tip Top Tavern. There have been numerous comments on social media and an in-depth profile of Teisberg by Scott Gordon for the website Tone Madison.

Concert Review: Gillian Welch Transfixes Vinyl-Fanatic Crowd at the Orpheum: The line at the merch table indicated some Welch buffs might have come to the show primarily to buy the new/old record, actually. Indie stores sold out of the first “Harrow” pressing quickly, and Amazon has had it on back order since before it came out in late July. Welch told the crowd how they’d completed an additional pressing right before this west coast swing, and when the shipment had been held up at a receiving center in San Bernardino that afternoon, crew members drove out to personally retrieve the boxes. All this so everyone could share in the glory of acoustic guitars in glorious start-to-finish analog.

The Paul McCartney Archive Collection: Paul McCartney’s critically acclaimed and multiple Grammy Award-winning Archive Collection will offer fans another chance to complete their collections on November 17, 2017. That date will see the MPL/Capitol/UMe reissues of the first eight Archive Collection titles in affordable single CD digipak and 180gram black vinyl single LP formats—as well as limited edition 180gram color vinyl pressings. All vinyl LPs in the Archive Collection will feature a download card and fully restored artwork.

Moody Blues Assemble 50th Anniversary Edition of “Days of Future Passed”: On November 10, 1967, the Moody Blues released their second album and the first with a new lineup that pushed the boundaries of rock music and blurred them with classical. Based on a stage show concept the band had created, they went into the studio with Peter Knight and the London Festival Orchestra to record the high concept album that saw multi-movement sections representing different parts of the day. While many consider the album a pioneering effort in the development of progressive rock, it is also seen as one of the first to combine rock with an orchestra although, in reality, the London Festival Orchestra only plays during the last section of “Nights in White Satin”.
