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

Great song

Still a great song today!

One of my favorites.....love the verses and how they just roll off the tongue and pop! This is one of the songs that got me really focused on songwriting.

Great song

"...They hide it up in Telluride; I mean it's here to stay..."

Great song

They don’t make music like that anymore. Perfection.

Fantastic to see all 7 members on stage together! ❤️

One night my son was leaving to join some friends for dinner, I was watching a video of the Eagles playing in Washington D.C. 1977 ~ “Hotel California” was playing when he left. While he was waiting for his friends at the restaurant ~ “Hotel California” played on the radio feed. When he left the restaurant to come home, he turned on his pickup ~ “Hotel California” was the first song on the Sirius radio. He walked in the house ~ I was watching the video of the Eagles playing “Hotel California” in 1998! He said, “Oh my God! I’ve now heard this song 4 times in the span of 2 hours...not to mention the 759,397 times I have heard it throughout my life! I said, “Ryan, it’s ‘Hotel California’ you can check out any time you like, but...you can never leave.” 😆🎶

I will always Love and Miss GLENN💕FOREVER.

Absolutely perfection so much wonderful talent.

I still love watching this video!!

They still great, one of my all time favorite groups.

masters of the craft...love these guys

Nothing better ❤️

Best song ever,never get tired of listening to it

such a lovely place!

Freaking Awesome!!!

Grand time everybody on the pool

I saw them in Tulsa in the early 70's. Not exactly sure of the year and I lost my ticket stub (😫) to be able to check. Great show, they started out with Seven Bridges Road of course.

Moonlight said the night man... we are programed to receive...you can check out any time you like...but you can never leave..

One of the best bands ever!

Love the Eagles the greatest songs ever

I saw them in quite a few places. Without Glenn Frey it's gone forever.

Sounds cliché, but I can hear this song 1000 times a day and not get bored. This is my song.

I watch this all the time on YouTube. That was a good night for the rock n roll HOF.

One of the All Time Greats.😊

Shivers...#Hotel California ❤️

My absolute favorite!!!❤️

I LOVE THE EAGLES GREAT MUSIC! And people who stand up for missing people and kids!!

What a treat, ty Jack! To see all together, Glenn getting rather lost in the song... what a fab moment in music history. More prophetic than we realized at the time.

"Don Henley and Glenn Frey came to me and said: “We have been thinking of starting the Eagles back up again, and we can’t do it without you, and we can’t do it unless you’re sober.” -Joe Walsh interview in GQ Magazine. https://www.gq.com/story/clean-musicians ... See MoreSee Less

Joe Walsh joining Eagles made the band transition from Country Rock to be an amazing Rock band. He gives them an edge! Lucky to have seen Joe play with the Party Boys in Australia 🇦🇺 😎😘

This is such a good read. Henley & Frey undoubtedly saved Joe from himself and gave him a reason to want to get sober. I’m glad these musicians were able to find sobriety. Thank you for sharing.

They just took a 14-year vacation 😉 Hell freezes over was my first ever DVD in 1994 and still is one of my favorites.

Musicians live in a brotherhood. Even those that realize commercial success are very real folks with the same weaknesses that everyone has. We live, eat ,breath and do everything as fans do. Like painters.musicians are artists ,weaving stories and melodies together that we hope will hold meaning for the listener. Ours can be a rough road. God Bless the members of the Eagles for they understood that like family we sometimes disagree, but we still need one another in the Long Run.

Joe's contribution to the Eagles is well documented through his excellent guitar playing, also some great material!.

Good for you Joe Walsh you belong to one of the greatest groups ever

Thank God!! We NEED to keep this music & Joe Walsh alive! For a LONG time to come 👍

Joe you are awesome! Greatest guitarists!

You always hear the bad side of bands. It is so good to hear about the far more important good influence that truly saved a life!

Much love for you Joe Walsh & the Eagles!!!!

Joe ended up been the icing on the cake when they decided to bring him in board to give the rock muscle the band needed!

Henley and Frey saved his life and he knows it. Great story. Best band ever! Glad I was able to see them thanks to my wonderful wife Patty Rutkin Tompi!

What a powerful story. I’m struck by the similarities in each of their stories and by how good and healthy they all look now. I was once at a Glenn Frey/Joe Walsh show somewhere in Tennessee and Joe was so wasted, they had to take him off the stage. Glenn continued on alone. It was sad. So glad he got sober.

Love you Joe. Glad you were able to get it done & can still rock & fly high with the Eagles! Will always love you forever

We are all glad they did start up the band again & that Joe sobered up to be a part of it❤️🦅🎸🎤

And so....the real Joe came shining right on through!

Joe Walsh is a great guitarist

Thanks for inspiring other friends of Bill W who play the guitar ( poorly, even when I'm sober).

Best decision for all involved. Such a great combination of talent!

Love you & so glad that you listened to your band mates. God Bless You.

Forever thankful! God bless Joe! Irving (Azoff),you Jack,& each of The Eagles! 🦅

You are so loved! The Eagles were my favorite band/group!!

God bless you Joe Walsh! Stay strong. Proud of you!

Best band ever!! Way to shine Joe! You rock!!

Joe Walsh is one of a kind! Love watching him.

It would be the only time that all 7 appeared on stage at the same time, no? The last time that all 4 original members would share the stage for sure.

What a great thing for Rock and Roll! They will be in my heart forever.

A great thing to see and hear. They all contributed to the tapestry that we listen to every day.

Colton Moorehouse can you imagine how awesome it would be if Felder and meisner took the stage at least once with them today. They need to put their differences aside with Felder already

Awesome Jack!!!thanks for sharing ❤️🦅

wow. sad. such amazing talent!

Very nice. But a bit sad as well.. ❤️

Love Eagles. I saw them in concert. Good music

Greatest Band EVAH!

Best band ever!

Oh I love the Eagles ! Have all their music!

I will always Love and Miss GLENN 💕FOREVER.

Loved the eagles. Glenn your so beloved thx for the music..and thx to jack tempchin .glenn always spoke good of you..

,😀👍 cool

Unless I'm missing something, it would be the ONLY time all 7 appeared together on the stage to play and sing. Walsh would join the original 4 (+ Felder) before he joined the band, but no Schmitt.

Loved all of them. Such talent.

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Looooooove the Eagles. Especially Glenn & Randy. ❤️❤️❤️🎊🎉💓🍷🍷

SUCH A FINE SIGHT TO SEE!!!

Love you glen 💕

I was lucky enough to see them the last tour Glenn played with them. It’s a night I’ll never forget

Such amazing talent, Love the Eages

RIP Glenn love you dearly ! Your music lives on always

Roll on July in Dublin Ireland . ☘️💖🥰💖☘️
