I ’m not much for country music, but this and “Already Gone” (also written by Jack Tempchin) always make me smile. I often wonder whatever happened to the Professional Songwriter, and not the boy band kind. I’m talking about the folks who could write rock songs that stood the test of time: Paul Pena’s “Jet Airliner,” Richie Vito’s “Surrender To Me” and Jack Tempchin’s “Peaceful, Easy Feeling.” Maybe The Beatles had people bugged about writing their own stuff, but to me it’s all about the final product and in the end “Peaceful, Easy Feeling” is a great song. This was originally released as the third single from their debut, then again in 1976 after the Greatest Hits album and finally on a reissue alongside “Life In The Fast Lane.”

The Last Word

“Every time I saw a pretty girl in San Diego, I’d make another verse and put her in the song. I finished that song on Washington Boulevard in the parking lot of the der Weinerschnitzel.” -- Jack Tempchin about "Peaceful, Easy Feeling." (Source: San Diego CityBEAT.)
