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 love the On The Border album! It maybe my favorite.

Memories, thanks Jack

Thanks Jack once again

I will always Love and Miss GLENN💕FOREVER.

Love it! Same year I got out of the Air Force! 👍🏻👍🏻

Maybe the greatest FYB song ever

favorite group. Saw them in Winnipeg on their first Hotel California tour. late 70's So Kool.

My favorite Rock and Roll song! In 1974, there were no computer and digital tools to make a band or performer sound better than they were. It was analog and simply put you were as good as you sounded. Today it’s a joke in comparison. Joe Walsh recent wrote he wished they went back to the days a guitar player had to actually play the guitar wo digital fixes. I’m paraphrasing his exact statement.

Damn great song... from a fun great era!

I am proud for you Jack and grateful to you for writing these wonderful songs for the Eagles. I hope you've been compensated well.

Agreed .... On The Border is monumental

Peaceful Easy Feeling, Already Gone and a host of other songs. Jack Tempchin a phenomenal song writer.

Love, love, love! Can’t believe it was released WAYYYY back in 1974!

Great lyrics. Great music. Classic!

I will sing this victory song...woo hoo hoo...🎶

My favorite band. Love me some Eagles music

Love you Jack!!! I hope you're well 💖

Great song and great mood changer! Perfect way to start the weekend

My favorite song!🍷👏

Jack, a truly talented songwriter.

My Favorite Eagles album among an entire catalogue of favorites!

Great song, Mr. Tempchin!!! ❤️❤️❤️

Thank you so much Jack😊 Your the best❤️

Great song and love the Eagles!

Never gets old, they were cooking in this video.

Love this song!💖

Thanks Jack, Love this

glenn frey would introduce this song a lot by saying,heres how it all started

I wish an Eagles Live Deluxe would come out because the DVD's only an hour long and they did at least 20 songs on the tour.

🎶🦅♥️🎶🦅♥️

Just imagine what it would have been like to live in that apartment complex with Jackson Browne , Glen Frye, and others at that time

they were at their peak at this time 42 years later still classic concert final year with randy Meisner

The best of the best❤️

Love the song , love the Eagles

Love all the Eagles. Didn't know about the song writer.

🌹♥️🌹

This song, whether sung by Jackson Browne, The Eagles, or Glenn Frey, is always an experience! I would have loved to be a fly on the wall when these guys were writing this song!

Absolutely amazing

Ive said it before, but thank you Jack & the band for truly creating songs & a "soundtrack" for America. 🇺🇸🎵💖

The "entire show" is not included, just a few songs from that night. I sure wish that the entire show was available. Precious little video has ever been released from either the Hotel California or Long Run tours.
