Peaceful Easy Feeling: The Songs of Jack Tempchin

“This album, Peaceful Easy Feeling: The Songs of Jack Tempchin, is [my recordings of] all the songs I wrote with Glenn Frey, plus “Slow Dancing,” “Peaceful Easy Feeling” and “Already Gone.” For “Slow Dancing,” I recorded a duet version with Rita Coolidge, and we’ve filmed a video with the two of us singing on it.

Also on the album is “Soul Searchin’,” which I recorded with blues singer Janiva Magness. And then I recorded an acoustic version of “Already Gone” with my friends Chris Hillman and Herb Pedersen. Chris, Herb and I also recorded a song called “It’s Your World Now,” which is on the last Eagles album they recorded (Long Road Out of Eden). I also did a song called “Privacy” which Glenn and I wrote, but no one’s heard before. We’re making a video of this song…

This was a great new opportunity—I’d never recorded any of these songs. It was challenging, but I think the album turned out great and I’m glad I did it. Also, by doing duets which I don’t normally do, it expanded me musically. So it was really a good thing.” – Jack Tempchin in Songwriter’s Universe

RIPGlenn Frey we Miss you and your Special Voice 🙏🙏🙏❤️❤️

I just love them! I played their music a billion times in late 70’s.

Nobody does this kind of Harmony like the Eagles!! I don't think the Bands today know how to sing Harmony!! What a Great Band of Brothers!! I mean 1971 to Today!!

Their vocal warm up is better than MOST performers live.

My favorite band of all time!

Great song, he still sorely missed!

No matter how many times I hear this, it gets more beautiful each time!💙💙

Many blessings to you "Glenn" in Heaven. Missed dearly.

Great song that demonstrates the unmatched vocal skills of the best band ever.

Saw them do this at Roosevelt stadium, summer 76. Poco and Joe Walsh on the bill. Magic!

❤️ RIP Glenn Frey. Great harmony!

Always loved this. Growing up singing Barbershoppe, I really 'got' just how good these guys were at harmonies. First time I heard 'Witchy Woman' I was hooked. A friend and I did this particular piece in two-part harmony with just an acoustic 12 (in drop D) while noodling around at a friend's house for a dinner party. About the time we got to the 'unison' harmony of the verse, the entire house went quiet - though we didn't notice until we finished the outro harmony and we literally got a standing ovation. Nobody ever did it like these guys. I daresay many, if any, ever will again. Truly a unique part of American musical history the likes of which may never be seen again.

It’s brilliant to this day😍

oh how I miss Glenn Frey and all his musical talent. could listen to the old Eagles all day.

love,love,love, love this song--such a precious sound, brings such happiness to me

Check out Steve Young's version, too. He was a helluva singer/songwriter.

now thats a beautiful sounding memory that lives on n on n on.

The night the group came apart. And almost to blows

seems like I first remember "Seven Bridges Road" back in the late 60's.... but can't remember by who. Some help, please.

Heard them do this live a few months ago. Still sounded wonderful. Glen's son Decon is with them now.

Eagle's was the greatest band to me love the song one of these nights and best of my love

Looks like the video from Landover, Md.

Always amazing, just love the opportunity to listen to them still. God Bless

LOVE them sooo much R.I.P. Glenn Frey <3 <3

Then and Poco were my fave!!
