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 remember Glenn once being quoted as saying money has nothing to do with love until the divorce

Nothing better than the Eagles!

I loved Poco. One of my faves by them is Restrain . I'm not sure if its from A Good Feelin To Know album. Been a while but never gets old.

Once at a show in the 80's, I met Jack in line at the concession stand before the concert started. We started talking...I didn't even know who he was. He bought me a coke and said, "Hey, come backstage afterwards". I thought he was just a guy in a Hawaiian shirt hitting on me and joking around. Then a little while later, there he was, onstage opening for a band I can't even remember which one. It may have been Bonnie Raitt at Riverside De Anza theatre. She had just broken her thumb on a ski slope. Not sure but I remember Jack. I love the song Slow Dancing'. Such a gifted artist.

A transition album to be sure. I saw them live for the 3rd time after it dropped. They were better when I saw them as Pogo

LOVE POCO did my 8th grade speech on them

saw poco

I still have that album and listened to it not that long ago.

Poco Rose of cimarron what a tune 🎸

I still have that album in vinyl. Great stuff, all of you who contributed.

Love Poco!!!!


Love Poco ( legend)

My favorite moment in Eagles history seeing all 7 together on stage at the same time .

Still the best band whenever they take a stage ! Love Glenn and the cool he brought to the group but Vince and Deacon do just fine !

Like to see them anytime I can. Thats great for them but I wont be visiting that place (rrhof)because they have left out some of the most successful and influential bands of all time I suspect for political reasons. Its supposed to be about RR music. Wheres the following; Steppenwolf, Grand Funk RR, The Guess Who, Bad Co, Doobie Bros and Three Dog Night? All long overdue. Love the Eagles though, RIP Glenn.

Anything by the Eagles is great!

GOAT of bands!

I will always Love and Miss GLENN💗FOREVER.

“It’s an honor to be indicted...”-Bernie Leadon

One thing is for sure, they could really perform on stage, to the note. As much as I love them, CSNY sometimes sounded like alley cats live

I watched it when it was broadcast. So glad to see them all together playing my favorite Eagles song.

A class act by the band...so much great music by all.

Great job Jack and the band. Great to see again one of those great memories.

Just a sweet, sweet sound of awesomeness❣ before hittin' my pillow....their sound was totally together ... WOWW💓💓💓

This performance and Timothy's speech were the highlights of that day, in my humble opinion.

Right On! Drove to Winslow, Arizona to find out more about the song 🆒🆒🆒☮️😎

One of the Greatest Bands EVER!!!! LOVE THE EAGLES!!!!

They should have done this during the HFO tour. Missed opportunity that is no longer possible.

One of my favorite groups.AWESOME!
