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

🎁🎊🎈🎂🎉🎊 Happy Birthday Don Henley When I grew up I have listened to all the music you made. I love the music video Boys of Summer. You is whom I enjoy the most. I'm a big fan of the Eagles 🦅 and the albums He'll Freezes Over I loved. Their greatest hits, Eagles greatest hits vol. 2 my favorite album from building the perfect beast the end of the innocence is Actual Miles album and never stop listening to SunSet Grill. And I have never stopped playing it. I appreciate and thank you so much, I can't choose any of them. Thanks Don that I am a fan of you.

Happy Birthday Don Henley! My all time favourite band. You are an amazing singer/ songwriter/ musician. Hope you're having a great birthday and I wish you many more! XX😗😗

I love this man. He is amazing, talented and very very intelligent and not afraid to speak his mind. I had the pleasure of seeing the Eagles many times and seeing Don tour in St. Louis, MO at the Muny. I wish I could be at that concert tonight he is giving. Happy Birthday to my favorite singer every Don Henley.

Happy Birthday 🙂 I am a danish Eagles-fan. I have been that since the first time i heard Hotel California when i was in gymnasiet (high school) more than 40 years ago. I love the fact that there are still mysteries in the lyric to the title track left for me now - the best lyrics are those, that you almost understand - but everytime you are sure you know - it moves away, like the horizon. I am so happy that you chose to carry on with the Eagles - and i hope you write and record new songs for us. I loved Cass County btw 🙂 Have a very fine birthday - enjoy it all and your family and friends - and don't work too hard 🙂 🙂

Happy Birthday to you, Don Henley! Hope your day will be very special. I love your music and I never tire of hearing it. Wonderful music and thank you for it and your talents.

Happy Birthday Don!! Thank you for sharing your talent with the world!!! Your words tell my story better than I ever could. Love you!

Happy birthday Don. I have enjoyed the Eagles since your first album. I feel your vocals are great with the band and solo. One drummer to another, you do great work. Thanks for all the wonderful music, it trully is timeless.

Happy birthday!!! Thank you for all you've shared with us over the years -- with and without warts. Best wishes for as many more as you could possibly enjoy!!

Lotta 70 somethings this year and we are still rockin! I've seen the Eagles twice and was lucky to have attended the one in Grand Prairie benefiting your beautiful Caddo Lake. Happy Birthday Don Henley.

Happy Birthday Mr. Henley!!!! You have been blessed with a wonderful talent. Thank you! For sharing that talent with the world.

Sometimes I forget how awesome this area is and then I see Jack Tempchin playing guitar at Swami's just up the road at sunset and I remember this is paradise.

Fell in love to "Peaceful Easy Feeling." Got my heart broken to "Already Gone." Played my first harmonica on "The One You Love" and moved to New York on "You Belong to the City."

The Eagle's were one of the great bands of the 70's and Hotel California is an will always b a classic hit. U guy's rocked it...

I only wish it would rain. 99 here in Louisville, KY today. Humidity high. Green grass turning brown. Give me a song so I'll feel better.

JD Souther or Jackson Browne should have played the Dodger Stadium show instead of Vince Fill.

A cool rendition of one of the greatest ballads of the mid-late '70s. Still, missing the Am7-9s and the cool D7-9s that make this such a classic.

Didnt realize you were a lefty too, or maybe the video somehow got flipped. At any rate thanks for sharing. I love JD Southers material.

You can't beat having a little El Blurto on the beach. I have mine at the kitchen table when I can. Great to see you doing what you do best. Being you. Peace.

When I saw you in concert you talked about playing at The Back Door at SDSU. I played there a couple of times at open Mic night. Such a great place.

Gave this big lug a hug in Carlsbad for writing about six of my favorite songs.

I wanna yell at those people behind him "Do you know who the hell you're walking past?"

I spent quite a bit of time at their parties.. (Eagles) & had Joe Walsh as my electric guitar teacher! 😎

just left San Diego. tried to see if I could spot you at the beach playing...no luck

So glad you're doing this! Comedy routines are where it's at right now!HA HA

Hi Vicki THank you. How cool . We're all sidewalk buskers now. Sharing!!!!!!!

no Fifteen Days Under the Hood? I worked on my '61 today.

You still have that easy peaceful soulful voice Jack love ya Thanks for Sharing!

This is giving me a, Peaceful Easy Feeling Jack. One of my faves...

Thanks so much for your time jack have a wonderful evening. From Philadelphia with love.

Good evening Jack...how about a little desperado tonight...love you bunches...

Keith Harkin loved the time he spent with u, spoke so highly, but we already knew u r awesome

Hope you & Keith Harkin team up again soon! Love you two together also! Much love to you & your music

someone unconfuse me - where was he? Wasn't Swami's this time, right?

Thanks, I'll check him out. Clay just released a classic collection of his old stuff.

Hi! From the land of beautiful people with a heart! Philippines 🇵🇭 🇵🇭 🇵🇭 🇵🇭 🇵🇭 🇵🇭 🇵🇭 🇵🇭 🇵🇭

I bet they tour again ! Vince Gill didn't sign on for two shows and Deacon is already on his way to a great career ! Vince said he would drive his own car to tour with them ! I read where a tour will probably be a little later in 2018 !

If they continue to tour I hope Deacon will sing all of his Dads songs, I think that's the way it should be.

Awesome. I hope that some day I can see them perform live. The Eagles are one of the greatest bands of all time.

Love the way they switched between footage of Deacon and Glenn to show the similarities.


Leigh, so glad we were able to pull this one off. Love you baby girl 😉

I love seeing Deacon step up in his own place and shine his light!

He made his dad proud!!!

A night I will never forget

This is what we were talking about Jan Showalter!

the EAGELS greatest band of all time

Andy Mauafua read comments re Vince Gill too

My fav band !

Keep these updates coming, we can't get enough!

Wish I could be there!!?

Kind of eerie....Wishing Deacon the best...

Welcome to the family Deacon Frey
