Album: Released as a single (with Crosby, Stills and Nash)
Released: June, 1970
There is much to love about Ohio, but the starkest part of the song for me is the ending, with David Crosby literally crying out lines of disgust: “Four!”, “How many?”, “How many more!”. It’s raw and alive and as fresh hearing it now as it likely was when first recorded. Crosby once stated that Young singing Nixon’s name in the song Ohio was one of the bravest things he ever heard. It shows when you listen to his grieving appeals as the song fades.
