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

Thank you Jack. wow!

I remember seeing this as I bought the CD and thought it was a great release. On a song or two thier vocals reminded me of the beautifully layered harmonies of The Eagles.

Our generation really has had the best music. Loved Poco.

Wow! What a great duo! I have seen them both but never would have put them together. Wonderful harmony!

That reunion album is one of my favorites. This track and "Call It Love" were top shelf.

YES..Di Swanson. You Are so right our Generation Did have the BEST Bands with the BEST Music EVER ..I loved POCO and Love " CRAZY LOVE ".. TIMOTHY B. SMIDTH of the EAGLES was with them when this song was out ... Malinda DeBause

I like that album. It did not know they performed on the tonight show. Cool.

Always liked Poco, never figured out why they did not get bigger.

Good music and great memories! ☺

Love seeing new Randy vids out there!!

I'd pay to see this lineup...!

Do you know Fayne Tempchin from Ohio?

That's the Varsity team


Great song and performance!

love poco

Love Poco

Happy Birthday Dolly

She was't born Dolly Rebecca Parton Dean. Dean is her married name.

Beautiful Amazing Dolly. Happy Birthday to a Wonderful Talanted Lady. God .bless You XXX

Happy Birthday, Dolly. I first saw Miss Dolly in person with her mentor, Porter Wagoner in Sept. 1968 in New Bern, North Carolina about a month before my 16th birthday. Years later, when I was working in Radio.... I met and talked with her. What a beautiful, fun person if there ever was one. Wonderful person. Loved her work with others including, Brad Paisley, Smokey Robinson, and of course, Kenny Rogers. She is One Class Act.

Loved this song, loved the CD, loved them together. Wasn’t sure that duet would work but it sure did...

Happy birthday Dolly!🎵🎵❤❤😄😄🌴🌴

Love the Eagles. Love all of them. Love all of their songs. Them and Fleetwood Mac were my two all time favorite bands. 😀😍👍💖💕🎶

RIP MR Frey Thanks for Memorys

Great musician, great band, great songs, I saw them live in Scotland, fantastic, with young and old singing along word for word. He is sorely missed by all Eagles fans.

Gone but will never be forgotten, you are sadly missed Glenn Frey.

Time passes so quick but his music is still living on especially with his son standing proud on stage

Love the Eagles

I truly loved each song by each singer of the Eagles, was partial to Glenn's song though, miss him dearly thanks for giving us the Serius XM channel "The Eagles"" I love it so much!!!! It rocks my day!!!

It's like loosing a childhood friend.

I loved this man.

My favorite Eagle and The Eagles are my favorite band. RIP Glenn. You will forever be missed.

What a great Artist ! Too bad our medical system failed you , I’m sure there was much more in your tank !!!

Have believe it’s been 2years since we lost him RIP

And so handsome; This song touches your soul. :'(

This reminder is killing me today. It'll be 5 yrs tomorrow since my husband passed to his new world.


Thought of you today Jack, and all of his family and friends. He will never be forgotten. He lives on through all of us.

Miss you Glenn...........

Your Music and that of The Eagles live forever.

And The Legend Lives On.

My favorite band ea gles
