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

In addition to his wonderful music he was the perfect example of being humble and full of compassion. His lack of pride was something very rare in this business.

I miss him. He was very talented. Loved his voice with The Eagles.

Saw you on Netflix Jack. Looking good mate. Hope the release is a super success.

I worked with Keith and Harold. Quite a pair. Lots of talent.

Sure liked Glenn! Miss him!

Glenn Frey is one of the greats love is music

You're both best song writer,miss him so much!

Miss him

And sooo many gr8 1's! 😃😄😃

I have it

A great singer

Biloxi, Ms working. Luckily the Eagles were performing there and even luckier I met them and band members who gave me tickets back stage and to the after party. Wild night, WILD NIGHT..

Lord I know , ! Living in Galway ,this song was played in the ‘ disco clubs and everyone would be up dancin r trying too ha ha great song ,!

I agree with Fidelis..there is no way that you can listen to this song without feeling like you gotta move. Love it! 🎼

In 1979 I spent my vacations in Barcelona and bought the MC from The Long Run. Now I am 57 years old and I still love the Eagles.

This is a foot tapping song that you must sing along with wherever you are!

Loved the Eagles no matter what the song...beautiful music !!

There's gonna be a heartache tonight!

Freshman in highschool jamming out to it

My favorite rock band of all time. They have an eclectic mix of styles no other band has been able to present in so much quality.

Wow👍!Awesome pics🤗!Thanks for sharing Jack😀😍!

So what is sad is Don Henley is the 4th richest drummer on the planet, yet tickets are $1,000. 😢

I’m going tomorrow in Sacramento, my favorite band & my most favorite country singer Vince Gill will be joining the Eagles. 💜

Thank you so very much Jack! GOD BLESS YOU, YOURS AND THE EAGLES!
