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

I would love to see them with Deacon and Vince

Are they ever coming back to the San Francisco bay area

Question, Jack: Didn't Jackson Browne have a hand writing this song, or was I mis-informed?? Excellent tune! I've covered it in a couple of bands I was in. Other Eagle songs,as well...What a band!!

Deacon is looking and sounding like Glenn_he would be proud!

Went to see them last night... Fantastic show! Great set list.. Deacon definitely reminds me of his dad.

Had the honor of seeing him with the Eagles last night. Keeping his dad’s spirit alive 💙🦅

I have got tickets to see them in Denmark, in June 2019 - can’t wait to see them:)

Love this Jack. Deacon is doing his dad proud.

Love to see Deacon doing so well... he is an Eagle! Can’t wait to see them in Cleveland next weekend 😊

Deacon holds his own. Very heartwarming and healing addition to the band!

I wish I could see them live in concert!!😍😍

Have sang that Victory Song....many times on stage throughout the years. Always a crowd pleaser. Beautiful lyrics 🎸🎶🎼🎤🎧🎹🔈🎼🎶🎸

I love Don Henley and the Eagles

One of my favorite eagles songs. They don't make music like that anymore. What a talented bunch of musicians

Great job Deacon. I know your dad is smiling down on you. RIP Glenn

Can’t wait until next year Wembley Great Britain x👌🏻🇬🇧

Loved the Back Door! Thanks for writing that song! I should have spent more time there! 😊

I think the "On the Border" album was they're best album.

Great song and the Eagles arranged it perfectly for them at the time.

Deacon is doing a fantastic job!!! Dad would be so proud!!!

I love this song one of my favorites!

I wish I could see them in live concert just one time

Take it to the limit

Eagles are the best

He's matured so much...

So sad they chose not to do this song the last 2 times I saw them. They bring the house down when they do! May not be an Eagles song, but they rocked the hell out of it.

Love Don Henley one of the best drummers around

And so began one of the greatest solo careers of the last four decades! Henley has written some amazing songs...love that guy, even if he takes 8 years off between albums! He deserves it.

This album was amazing. So different. I love the diversity of Glenn’s and Don’s solo efforts.

Joe Walsh’s guitar work makes this my favorite version of this song. I also enjoy Glenn’s guitar solo.

That song was true back in the 80's and it's still true in 2018! Kick 'em when they're up... Kick 'em when they're down! 😆

Can’t sit still with this one! Love it! 🎸❤️

I love 💗 this version of “Dirty Laundry.” They’re all having fun playing it, each guy gets their own time on the guitar 🎸. The drums...just amazing! This concert in Melbourne is always fun to watch on my DVD 📀. Now if they would just put their other concerts out on DVD...😉

Just LUV this song and also the dancing!!!!!!!!!

Love this song and Don singing!

Man I just love the best to dirty laundry came out in 81 Don henley.when the group was split.up thank god 12-13 years later he'll freezes over except Randy wasn't there.

Love it😍love Don😍

Brilliant lyrics!

Love Don, great song!

Great song

When I listened to this album for the first time, I saw a different side of Don

Amazing finger-work on the first solo by Walsh...outstanding!🎸🎼

Great song.

Love Don and his drumming,also a great Album!

Love Don Henley and the Eagles!

I love it and the best. Lisa Marie Presley did a great cover

What a great song and very relevant today

I love the Eagles

Is it ever true now!

The beat.pardon.
