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

"The Heat Is On" hit #2 on Billboard charts on this day in 1985...
'Beverly Hills Cop' turned Eddie Murphy into one of the biggest movie stars in the world and the soundtrack sold by the millions. The sax-heavy tune was ubiquitous on Top 40 radio and MTV in the winter of 1984. At first, Glenn Frey didn't realize what a huge hit he had on his hands. "I came in, I sang it one day, I played guitar and did background vocals the next day and I got a small check, I think 15 grand," he said. "I had a little Christmas money, and I was happy." -Rolling StoneGlenn Frey - 'The Heat Is On' (Written by Harold Faltermeyer and Keith Forsey)

I always loved Glenn's voice and all of his saxophone arrangements on his songs.

Great song! All Eagles music is good!!

The Beverly Hills Cop music department knew who to hire to get a great song. Glenn delivered just as he would do later with Thelma & Louise

That concert was in Japan and it was sweltering. He had a great band for that tour. I think he was on top of his game at this time.

"Awesome Song"!! All the Eagles Songs are great!! "I Love "Get Over It"!! The Eagles will live on forever!! We Love "Rock" and "Roll"!! Love Deb xxoo <3 <3 <3 "Dance"!!!

Have his greatest hits playing in my car over and over <3

I'm so glad I got to see him in concert more than once

Mr Cool of rock and the Eagles . Great voice

Smugglers Blues!!!

Just heard about a Glenn box set being released 5/11...Great news...

Big song to drive by in the80s

Lol... I love how he says $15k is a “little check”!

Great tune . Takes me back to HS !


Second solo favorite after you belong to the city..

Still makes me think of Beverly Hills Cop!

Love it.

Song for today

Great song to dance to
