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

I grew up listening to Poco the Byrd’s and the Eagles plus Pure Prairie league

Love Poco

Another stage full of amazing talent!

Poco was a cool band!!! I had one of their albums.

Such talent ❤

Thanks for sharing Jack Tempchin.

Crazy Love ❤️

One of my favorite bands. Saw them at The Bottom Line in 78. Randy Meisner is a legend.

If Randy had the superstar mentality he would be hailed today as one of the greatest. Just my humble opinion.

Don’t forget about Richie!

Great album!

Love Poco, such talent

thank you Jack Eagles Songwriter Jack Tempchin❤️
