Jimmy McHugh: "I Don't Want Everything" - Success Records
Jimmy Mchugh, from Hammond, Indiana, originated "The Jeepers Band". I joined them soon after they got together. Jimmy left the band after a few years to attend college, Drake University. It was while he was there that he wrote and recorded "I Don't Want Everything" for Success Records out of Des Moines, Iowa. The song was released in 1963 as a single and was also on an album titled "Only For Teenagers and Real Swinging Adults". This compilation album featured Jimmy McHugh, The Blendtones, The Extensions, The Martinels, Oscar Boyd and Cicero Blake. The tune "I Don't Want Everything" was one of Pittsburg's Favorites and received a lot of radio air play in that great town. Jimmy is a special friend and the two of us have kept in touch through all these years.
