Beg Borrow and Steal

In 1965, a bunch of kids from Ohio were in a band that released the amazing Garage Rock classic, Beg Borrow and Steal, under the name of The Rare Breed and Ohio Express.

In 2008, two of these kids released a YouTube video on their BegBorrowAndSteal channel of them performing their song.

Here are three videos of this awesome tune. The first is a video of what sounds like the 45 single, most likely in mono. The seond is someone playing the Stereo Album version, with a cool locomotive intro. The third is of the original "kids" who recorded it, from 2008.

You can download an MP3 of the song from our site. It was recorded from the Mod Monday 60s Radio Show on WNYU in NY in 1983 on a portable radio with a built-in cassette recorder. You can hear the DJ's voiceover at the end:

Also hear the 45 at this link:

These are two of the original band who recorded Beg Borrow and Steal. It was released under names Rare Breed and Ohio Express. This is NOT a cover. People who recorded this record were: John Freno, Barry Stolnick, Alexander "Botts" Norbit, Joel Feigenbaum and Tony Cambria. The record did not sell when released under the "Attack" label, but sold about a half a million copies under "Cameo Parkway". We've also put the other song we recorded on YouTube, Lightning Doesn't Strike Twice. A picture of the original 5 who recorded these songs can be seen here.
