Every Day I Have to Cry was Steve Alaimo's third album for Checker Records. Rather than capitalizing on dance crazes, this album is completely devoted to songs about crying. (The debut albums of Chuck Jackson and Lesley GoreI Don't Want to Cry! and I'll Cry If I Want To, respectively—are devoted to the same subject.)

The title track was later recorded by Arthur Alexander (who also wrote the song), Dusty Springfield, The Valentines (featuring Bon Scott) and Johnny Rivers among others. The album was arranged by Bill Justis and the cover design was by Howie Richmond. Mort Thomasson and Selby Coffeen were credited for the engineering.
