This is one of my favorite albums, along with the Funky Kings album that preceded it (I can't believe that Kings album is not available on CD but there you go). One great song after another, with the highlights for me being Golden Life and Walkaway. Go check them out on YouTube and hear it for yourself. Golden Life is quiet desperation taken to the max, with the lyrics scalding against the laid back music. I love the ironic way he puts a lyric like "Things that tore the heart from me now just pretty scenery" against a smooth, relaxed instrumental that completely works against it- it's genius. Maybe it's too understated for some people but if you actually listen to lyrics and like a songwriter who can write melodies this is an album you should discover. All killer, no filler. And Peaceful Easy Feeling is far from being the best song here, which tells you how good the rest of it is.

Jack Tempchin was one of the three songwriters for the Funky Kings on their lone, self-titled album from 1976. Released on Arista, "Funky Kings" was a commercial bust, despite being a solid album of mid-'70s, West Coast singer-songwriter rock. Plans for a second Funky Kings album fell through, but Tempchin stayed on board with Arista, perhaps as a means of contract fulfillment, and in 1978 came a self-titled solo record from him.

One gets the impression that the lack of commercial success for the Funky Kings was a serious downer for Tempchin. The wonderfully ludicrous amount of confidence he'd displayed on the "Funky Kings" album has been completely washed away, and despite slipping in a fine sighing ballad with "Golden Life", Tempchin mostly sounds like he's going through the motions here, churning out low-energy country-flavored soft rock that's tasteful but dull. It's as if Tempchin knew he'd been defeated and stood no chance for victory. The one song that tries for over-the-top humor, "Fifteen Days Under The Hood", sounds forced, choppy, and lacking genuine enthusiasm. Songs such as "Stingaree" and "Pick Up Truck" display respectable craftsmanship, but they lack punch, and they're hardly hook-fests, featuring very conventional country-rock melodicism. Tempchin also serves up a super-dull 'dreamy' version of "Peaceful Easy Feeling" with annoyingly 'heavenly' vocals from Jennifer Warnes.

So, despite the high level of professionalism and some pleasant tunes, this is an undeniably disappointing listen, with no truly great songs at all, and it's not surprising that it marked the end of Tempchin's career as a recording artist apart from an occasional appearance with Glenn Frey and a re-emergence in the mid-'90s.
