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

Jack the first LP I ever had was the Eagles first and I was just in Kindergarten believe it or not. My uncle had received one for his 21st birthday on 8 track as I remember, I drove everyone crazy as I kept flipping the player back to Take It Easy! I was hooked young. I made my parents get me the record a few days later. By third grade I was playing Train Leaves , Nitengale, Tryin, Earlybird, etc, on my 1956 Gibson LGO that was beat to Haiti but had a huge power G chord and as I remember with Tuning that old box with a pipe in those days I had to pull the RPM down on my record player as Take It Easy at least was laid down a tad low! This is a great clip. Thanks

Jack I thought Glenns son was great and vince gill is the best....although reviews were mixed....at least they can still play together after such a great loss

Happy Birthday Bernie Leadon !!!!!

Happy birthday Bernie! I was super excited to see him as part of the History of the Eagles tour!☺️👏

Love, love, love! Saw this on that tour and fell in love all over again! There are so many songs that ya'll wrote that you forget a few!

Without Bernie, those guys wouldn't have soared so high right away. Happy Bday indeed!!!

I always felt that the best version of the eagles line at the time of the "on the border" album when Henley Frey Meissner fielder and Bernie were together. It become too rock orientated after Bernie left although more successful. He brought the country and bluegrass to the eagles with his guitar and mandolin and steel playing. Great musician. I particularly liked his banjo playing too and he guessed on an album by restless heart on the track " we got the love" which is a track similar in style to "take it easy"

After Bernie left The Eagles, he had a duo with a guy whose name escapes me.Did one album. Saw them open for Linda Ronstadt at Tanglewood.Bernie did My Man.Great.

I was thrilled a few years back to see him on that tour and get to finally see him sing "Train leaves here this morning"... One of my all-time favorite songs. Happy birthday Bernie!

AND? ...............why isn't he out there?

got to see Bernie Leadon with the Eagles during their very last performance in Bossier City. Don announced it was their final concert. Who knew then that it really would be the last time they would be together. No better music out there than the Eagles <3

Nobody plays the Telecaster on Take it Easy like Bernie! Was fortunate enough to see him with the Eagles on the History Tour in Montreal Canada in 2013. When he was introduced, my wife was stunned...it was the only time she'd ever seen me speechless!

He's a great musician. He just was more country classically. And the Eagles were going in a different. More rock genre. Those were his words. Love hearing his work. His banjo talent is amazing

Happy Birthday, Bernie! Thanks for all the great music, especially 'Journey of the Sorcerer'. Hope to see you on stage again real soon!

Happy Birthday Bernie, saw you guys in St. Louis in 2013, that was a magical night I will never forget seeing three of the original Eagles on the same stage. Love you, have a great birthday!!!

Nothing could beat the original four Eagles. The acoustic sounds, along with the banjo and mandolin were the root. Happy Birthday Bernie!

Happy Birthday Bernie, great singing and Guitar picking, got to see you a few years ago in Memphis and New Orleans, y'all rocked my world love ya❤️

Happy Birthday Bernie, may you have many, many, more years of great music to come. Thanks for sharing your talent with us.🎂

For years there only 2 original Eagles members in the group that performed, and now there is only 1 original member in the group. I do not believe they should use the name 'The Eagles'.

The eagles were best when Bernie Leadon and Randy Meisner were included.

Bernie should be up there on stage with them.

I had that Dillard and Clark. and all the Dillard's albums. love Bernie

Happy birthday 🎂 🎈 Bernie leadon.enjoy your day and thank you for your contribution to the eagles.

Happy Birthday Bernie. You are a great entertainer and musician.

Grandissimo Bernie, la vera anima country degli Eagles

I'm sad that he didn't come back for the "Classic" shows. Outstanding musician!

I went to the HOTE Tour specifically to hear Bernie. Happy Birthday and I hope if the band continues they include Bernie.

Happy Birthday Bernie. I am glad I was able to see you perform with The Eagles in 2015.

WAY TO HANG, Bernie. The music doesn't stop till we evaporate! HAPPY BIRTHDAY AND MANY MORE! 🎂

See Billy Joel's interview with Henley and Kenny Rogers really got them the break they needed !

Saw him July 24 2015 with The Eagles, best concert of my life.
