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

Dont recall him having a number one single

What a talent & unique voice I will Love forever!

best voice I hear from the workers at MSG he's quite the DIVA....hehehehe ...everyone walks on eggshells when he's in town.....

Don distilled his seemingly brooding persona into just one line here. Man, this cat can make one think

Don Henley is my favorite. Seen him many times by himself and with the Eagles . Best times was at the Fox theater with my son Ben. We were lucky enough to have seats very close to the stage .

Love Don Henley, The Eagles

As soon as I heard that the album was released, I went to buy it

Uncloudy Day with Bill Withers in tow was well done.

The classic debut solo album from Don 👌

Boys of summer

Saw him live in Wisconsin in 1991. He sang a lot of Eagles songs and solos. Best song of the night was Hotel California with him at the drums

What a different sound! Loves it from the start.

Had this one and it's my fav by Don.

Dirty Laundry ..........

I have that album..

great singer songwriter on topical issures the man with the golden throat

I thought it went #3
