I Don't Want to Cry! is Chuck Jackson's debut studio album, released in 1961. This album is completely devoted to songs about crying (Lesley Gore's debut album I'll Cry if I Want To and Steve Alaimo's album Every Day I Have to Cry were both released in 1963 and are also devoted to the same subject). Jackson co-wrote the title track, which became a Top 40 Pop hit and a Top 5 R&B hit.
