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 pre-ordered it the day it was available. Was supposed to get it yesterday. Got a message that it has been delayed 🙁 Not happy !

Listening to it makes me miss him all over again 💕

Norton has the original copy of Dublin. Glenn made him get it from the sound co.

EeeYoo Jack! Glad to see you're out there rockin' it! I know we both miss and think about our buddy Glenn every day .. I know you've got a ton of stuff on his new box set, can you tell me who to contact or whatever info there is about reuse of the recordings? Im sure my playing is on all of the 'live' Dublin DVD, and I haven't heard anything about it being licensed by this company... thanks

I wish they had included a live performance he did in Tokyo back in 1986 instead of the Dublin show. It can be found on YouTube and it's amazing.

The show in Dublin was pretty amazing too. I was at it.

Is it available in shops.


A great song and singer

I will have this!

Love Glenn
