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

Happy Bernie

What a great singer and musician

I wonder why Bernie changed the line "1320 North Columbus was the address that I wrote down on my sleeve" to ".....address I had written on my sleeve." when he returned with the band for the History of the Eagles tour? I saw them twice on the tour and it struck me because I had heard it the original way for so many years. I'd love to know.

I love this song!

Great tune.

Love the Eagles

Miss Bernie and his banjo!

Happy Birthday!!

My fav set, still naive... love how Don jumps when he sees the camera on him

Frey was great on Miami Vice, he fit in good with Sonny Crockett

One of the best music videos ever.

I watched that video and the Miami Vice episode many, many times and still love it!

Miss Glenn! Fortunately his son stepped in for him . And the Eagles are still the best! Love the Eagles!

Love the Eagles music

They hide it up in Telluride. In High school we knew there was more snow in Telluride in the summer than the winter. The mayor was busted.

Jack this is one of my old time favorite songs!

Sure glad his son stepped in for him. Sure miss Glenn.

Always love The Eagles.

This is one of my favorites because of the searing guitar. Ah, man just like the feelings I get when I feel the chords sear through me listening to James Dean...

Lord I still miss this man so much...

I remember this song so well. It told a story. Still rings true today.

I love Glen so much Jack.....and you too ❤🌹 I watch something with yall in it and Joe every day...🎸🎼🌟

I love love love this song. It’s peppy, great beat and of course, it’s the great Glenn Frey.

Love this song.

Speaking of smugglers ... I became friends with a plumber born in Aspen that said he use to get his coke from Glenn ... and Glenn would invite him backstage at concerts. I wondered if he was stashing contraband at the condo he had ... next to the one I had ... in Downtown Basalt in 1985. Guess that's one way ... to know you're getting the BEST product

Great song, miss Glenn ❤️

That man made alot of good music with the eagles and his solo stuff I always liked party town off his no fun aloud album

Love the song writer.

Awesome song !!!! And loved Miami Vice

I love the lyrics in that tune

One of the best songs of the 1980s.

Awesome track. Takes me back to the Miami Vice days

Great song great guy . Wish he was still here 😒

Omg my favorite glen song
