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

She was such a powerful singer and how she could belt them out!!! Jackson didn’t stand a chance. Love em both!!! Good song !!!

Jackson lived in Highland Park California and Patronized a bar called Pinky's!

Love Love it and J D Souther and Linda!

Sure love Linda. Thanks to Linda, you Jack, and Jackson. It’s all of you that made Linda decide to join the California sound!

Yes linda say These Day is very good song I met Joe Henry ask like this Why play last that song Joe say every american musician loves These Day

Going to see Jackson tomorrow night at Red Rocks. Haven’t seen him since I saw him with you and Joe Raphael in Escondido at that Circle of Friends benefit you guys did for that young man with a brain injury from a motorcycle accident ... if my memory serves me correctly. This getting old SUCKS ... but for the moment ... there’s NO other option ... until we met up with our ole buddy Glenn

Love Linda and Jackson . I’ll be seeing him in LA at the Greek Theater on August 4th. Happy birthday Linda ❤️❤️

You just can’t go wrong with this music! One of my favorite male singer/songwriters.

Great artist. Happy Being Born Day and many more days


Happy Birthday 🎉🎊🎂🎁🎈 Linda Rondstadt

Love Linda to this day...
