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

It was is a great tribute to Glenn but the Eagles will never be the same without him. Well done Deacon!

The Eagles are very protective of their live content. I agree with them it’s their property. Videos and digital downloads of shows from their tours would be nice though.

Awesome job Deacon Frey,you done your dad proud.I love the eagles and their music

Thank you for sharing this Jack. I saw Deacon perform when he was just 14 and he did a great job then. I haven't been able to bring myself to go to a concert since Glenn's been gone so it was wonderful to see/hear Deacon. ❤️

46 years ago who could have predicted this song would become the definitive tribute song to Glenn? So touching to watch and it is still one of the best songs ever written. Way to go Jack.

Awesome tribute ❤️❤️sadly missed Glenn god rest your soul??wonderful and heartfelt EAGLES JACKIE 🙏🙏🙏

Will we ever see a TV special ?

Sure hope they come to Australia! Amanda Jane Drew!

Just bursted out in tears. Had to. Couldn't stop it. This is so beautiful!! ❤️

My fav Glenn album. I only wish Glenn had recorded more albums of classic love songs, his voice was built for love ballads. After Hours stays close to my heart and I play it often. The song " After Hours" is truly of the highest caliber, a classic on it's own.

Love this one...His so good ...outside Eagles too. <3

I fell in love with Glenn all over again. While rock and roll is my music of choice but before that I listened to my parent’s music. Thanks Glenn! And thanks Jack!

One of my favorite songs from one of my favorite movies from the 60's, The Sandpiper. Love Glenn singing it. I just melt <3

I didn't like this era....glenn singing old fart songs.....timothy with a mullet......not a good thing....glad they went back to the root of the song and the looks with it

Sweet beautiful song-Glenn totally nailed it!

Pretty song , thanks !

Take it to the limit

My favorite song!!

Such a beautiful song! 😊

Love the album!👍😊

Beautiful song.

My live changed drastically when the Beatles were on the Ed Sullivan Show. Nothing would be the same. I quickly got a record player so I could take my music out the hifi in the living room! I became the rebel of the family! Happy Birthday Sir Paul!

Happy Birthday, Sir Paul. You are the Beethoven of our time.

not to fond of this sappy song........

Happy Birthday, Sir Paul 🎉🎈
