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

This was the song they opened with in Detroit in October. I missed it as I was changing my seat because I was up so high I was scared! LOL I will be seeing the show in Pittsburgh next year and I have really nice seats down below so I won't miss it this time!

"Help Me Through The Night" is definitely my favorite song from this album. Which is saying something, because normally, I'm reluctant to name a one "favorite" song from an album by him. Magnificent song.

Thanks Jack, just took a ride through three great albums. Thanks Joe Walsh for many years of great music!

My favorite Joe Walsh album just beautiful

Shortly thereafter he joined the band

“And it made your momma cry”

One of my all time favorites

"SO what" , Joe.. I love you..

Take it to the limit

Great, great album. maybe his best

You can tune a piano but you can't tune a fish.

In other words, it’s an Eagles Record.

Just a GREAT album!

Masterpiece album. Martin Barney

Went with Bruce Dyson, Pam Dyson, and saw the Hotel California tour at Arrowhead Stadium. Wow.,.. where did the time go?? Opening for them was Linda Ronstadt!

Actually forty ONE years ago, in 1976.
