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

Memories, thanks Jack

I will always Love and Miss GLENN💕FOREVER.

Thanks Jack once again

Love it! Same year I got out of the Air Force! 👍🏻👍🏻

Maybe the greatest FYB song ever

favorite group. Saw them in Winnipeg on their first Hotel California tour. late 70's So Kool.

My favorite Rock and Roll song! In 1974, there were no computer and digital tools to make a band or performer sound better than they were. It was analog and simply put you were as good as you sounded. Today it’s a joke in comparison. Joe Walsh recent wrote he wished they went back to the days a guitar player had to actually play the guitar wo digital fixes. I’m paraphrasing his exact statement.

Great song!

I am proud for you Jack and grateful to you for writing these wonderful songs for the Eagles. I hope you've been compensated well.

Damn great song... from a fun great era!

Agreed .... On The Border is monumental

Peaceful Easy Feeling, Already Gone and a host of other songs. Jack Tempchin a phenomenal song writer.

Love, love, love! Can’t believe it was released WAYYYY back in 1974!

Great lyrics. Great music. Classic!

My favorite band. Love me some Eagles music

Love you Jack!!! I hope you're well 💖

Great song and great mood changer! Perfect way to start the weekend

My favorite song!🍷👏

Jack, a truly talented songwriter.

My Favorite Eagles album among an entire catalogue of favorites!

Great song, Mr. Tempchin!!! ❤️❤️❤️

Thank you so much Jack😊 Your the best❤️

I will sing this victory song...woo hoo hoo...🎶

Great song and love the Eagles!

Never gets old, they were cooking in this video.

The "entire show" is not included, just a few songs from that night. I sure wish that the entire show was available. Precious little video has ever been released from either the Hotel California or Long Run tours.
