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

40+ years of great music and still selling out stadiums.

A big hello Mr. Jack Tempchin my favorite song is Peace Easy Feeling

Great concert not one seat was vacant, the boys did Great, Deacon was amazing !!!

Toni Owens Robertson look at my eagles selling out another stadium last night!

The Eagles were amazing loved every moment, when the showed Glenns photo on the screen the roars, the cheers, Gave you the best feeling of how loved he still is, they sung all the best songs, the end was like electrifying, all The claps and cell phone lights, the encores tremendous, Every bit of the Eagles concert was special !!!

Morning from Yorkshire England Jack , I always thought the were ‘Eagles’ and not ‘The Eagles’!....which is correct please.

Wow and well deserved

They put on an amazing show at the Fabulous Forum..

It was awesome

Unbelievable!!! They are to me America's greatest band!

What a great show last night!

Yes they did a wonderful job. I am just really upset that for the 2nd time Don did not sing much. For him to only do "Boys of Summer" while Joe Walsh did 5 of his songs was not right. Heck Vince sang more than Don. 🙁

Don't understand the choice of vince Gill

I feel Vince Gill is an excellent choice to tour with the Eagles

I know it can be disappointing, but the core and long time members are aging. We may have to get used to substitutes. There may be times when they just can't do it and need a break. I'm just thankful to have been able to see them earlier this year and they were simply AWESOME!

The Eagles never fail to ROCK IT!!!

Anything by the Eagles!

i tried for months to win a contest for tickects, sad

Perhaps he is enjoying a break

Wishing I was there 😢🎶🎼❤️

Not a bad song on this one. Meisner and the rest of the gang delivered on probably my favorite album from the 80's.

Grew up on Poco, Pure Prairie league, and the Eagles music some of the best country rock music ever written

Well, originally, Jim Messina was in the band. He left early and was replaced by Randy.

Got it on vinyl, such an incredible album! And Randy’s voice is marvellous! 🙂

This is my favorite POCO song.

Great album! Great song.

Love the Eagles


Richie Furay was in Poco, too.

One of my favorite bands, such great talent!

Love this album ❤️ that’s Jack 😊

POCO is my favorite band

Great LP!
