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

Wonderful collection of music Jack.. Glenn really was in fine form on this album.. Then I was at his gig in the Town and Country club in London in July that year and at the Live show in Dublin 👌😊

Jack - I’ve been trying to find that album or CD for the longest time. Any thoughts?

It's an awesome album!

Perfect song

Love the story of how you and Glenn came to write this song ❤️

One of my most favorite songs. Thank you

I love this song, when i was in high school my sister Amanda Sawaya Morse would piss me off by playing her own version of saxaphone, with no sax just her voice. We still laugh about it but don't be annoying in my car when my g frey was on, which was always.

Love this song.

This song is awesome✌🏻

One of my favorite,reminds me of my happy memorable days!
