I Need Some Money is an album by American jazz saxophonist Eddie Harris recorded in 1974 and released on the Atlantic label.[2]


The Allmusic review stated "Eddie Harris finally steps out as a singer in the first of a series of humorous hard-luck songs that would be the flagships of his next few LPs... In any case, the thing he still does best here is ride a groove, the best of which is the extremely danceable... There are indications, though, that Harris' repertoire of funk sax licks is beginning to run a bit thin".[1]
