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

Love the Eagles, miss your amasing voice Glen RIP

Watched both parts! He was still a funny guy! And when he answered some of the questions, you could tell, he was shrewd and savvy with music and his career! 👍

I shared this in our Eagles group because it is a very good interview.

Such a good guy! Love the Eagles! I could listen to them all day!

Nevet imagined that anyband member from the eagles would pass away let alone glenn frey miss his voice and the band suffered the biggest blow of losing him

So miss Glenn was a legend

😍

My favorite song, and a great version with the new Don Felder.

Love the Eagles, RIP Glenn

My favourite band❤️

One of my favorites as well! 🎤💕

One of my favorite Eagles songs!! All Eagles songs are my favorite!! ❤🎶🎸🎤

I was there in 95 pouring rain in Kansas... was still amazing!

Best band ever

Love this song and love the Eagles

As they say, the show must go on.....man those boys know how to rock

You can see the stars⭐⭐🌟⭐⭐ And still not see the light!!☀️

We did this song in a band I was in when I was in the Navy stationed in Sicily.. So much fun..

Rock on Eagles

Nice memories...

So miss his sharp wit & ability to connect with audience, even when a naive newbie he had a way. Again, ty!

Try it one more time then.

Was at an Eagles concert I want to say Meadowlands but not sure the moment Nixon was impeached. Guess what song they played.

Oh yeah!

♥️🌹♥️

I love this album but then I love everything Eagles!!

Happier, more creative, confident & willing to stretch as an artist... Bill brought all to the fore & fans are thankful for it

Beautiful song

My favorite Eagles song

I LOVE this song!!!!

Many will say that this is their favorite song! I say, that the reason the Eagles’ songs have endured the test of time is simply because nearly all, if not all, have touched each and everyone at some season of our lives. And, in doing so, have stayed with us to remind us of those seasons. Good or bad! My only wish would have been that several of the members would have been able to stay and continue writing with Henley and Frey. No matter though, I’ll always consider the Eagles my favorite band! Glen, you may be “already gone”, but the music you helped create lives on brother!

I just love this entire album!

Love the Eagles

I think this is Glenn's best lead guitar playing on an Eagles song.

It was a moving song

One of my favs! Wait. They're all my favs! Now that I have adjusted to the loss of Glenn, and have seen darling Deacon play, I can listen to Glenn's beautiful voice again. Now I smile. No more tears, I celebrate his amazing life. ❤ You helped start it All, Jack. We thank you! We bow to you!

Another great one, Jack!

One of my favorite albums of all time next to Hotel

Love that song, and love the Eagles!

One of my favorites..❤🎸🎼

After many years...I have settle in to this being my favorite Eagles album...great mix of Rock, Country and Ballads...Szymczky made a significant impact on the Eagles sound!

My fave song....

Love it

Love!

On the border I think is their best record

Brilliant

great album!

❤️❤️❤️❤️

Love it

❤️🌹❤️
