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

Don Henley is my favorite. Seen him many times by himself and with the Eagles . Best times was at the Fox theater with my son Ben. We were lucky enough to have seats very close to the stage .

Love Don Henley, The Eagles

Saw him live in Wisconsin in 1991. He sang a lot of Eagles songs and solos. Best song of the night was Hotel California with him at the drums

great singer songwriter on topical issures the man with the golden throat

Glenn does his best Rev. Al Green on this record! “Out of the blue, out of the night. You came along and ya changed my life...”

Jack, I'm sure Glenn knew that your coming into his life was no accident. It was kismet. Or just great karma coming both your ways. I know what a profound blessing it was for the both of you to come into each others lives. And for however much we all miss him it has to be so much more for you to have to carry in your heart. But he wouldn't want you grieving as you well know. Just be thankful for the time and memories you both shared together. He sure knew where to go when he needed inspiration. And I know you had to be just as inspired writing with him as well. Thank you so very much for every little thing you share with all of us. What a blessing we have all experienced knowing you. And all the enlightenment you bring to us all. God Bless Glenn and God Bless you Jack🙏💞💖🎶🎸☀🌈 ✌🎼

RIP Glenn. We lost one of the best in music history! Thanks Jack to you & the Eagles continuing his legacy with his son. Eagles continue to soar!! Love your work forever!

Jack It was a wonderful album Thank you for valuable video, at that time I did not have a video machine

May he rest in peace. Thank you for sharing this Jack

That voice, that face, the beautiful melody... Glenn will be missed forever.

He saw a lost love once . It was 95. It hurt for both.

I was shaken by his passing 🎶❤️🙏 hi jack 🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶

Another one of my Glenn Frey favorites!

"Too Fast To Live... Too Young To Die... Bye, Bye!" -Eagles released 'James Dean' as a single OTD in 1974. Written by Jackson Browne, JD Souther, Don Henley & Glenn Frey it was the 2nd single from their 'On The Border' LP after 'Already Gone' (Tempchin/Strandlund). The B-Side: 'Good Day In Hell' with newly recruited guitarist Don Felder.I suggest listening to all Eagles songs repeatedly. In one sitting for the best effect! I do not own this. ...

To young to die Glenn Frey...😞

Love the song "James Dean"....a Hoosier from Fairmount, IN near me in Indianapolis. The Eagles tribute song to James Dean is great.

The guitar work on "James Dean" is excellent! This is one of the Eagles' most underrated tunes.

Hello Jack. I took a couple of Eagles tour card stock posters to our local Hobby Lobby store this afternoon to get framed. One is the Hotel California Tour, 1977, and the other one is the Long Run Tour, 1979. While talking with the Gentleman taking our order about the Eagles, he told me the "night man" was in the store a couple years ago. Said he lives in central Arkansas. Also, the "night man" pointed out who he is on the back cover of the Hotel California Album. Would you be able to provide any information so I could get in touch with the "night man"?

It wasn't released here in Australia as a single !! That's a fact

I drew that album cover on two styrofoam cubes that I had in my old apartment back in the 70s that supported a color organ that the stereo sat on.

Hi Jack James Dean is one of my favorite,love listening Eagles songs till now.

Hi Jack,another great song by the Eagles,love all their music

Talk about a low down bad refrigerator you were just too cool for school...🎸

Great song though Jack!!

I love this whole album!!

Love that song!!!


Another underrated hit
