Back in 2000, Songs: Ohia (now Magnolia Electric Co.) sold a tour-only album, Protection Spells, that was limited to only 500 copies. Finally, the album is more widely available, via download through Emusic. It's a collection of songs that were recorded through several Songs: Ohia tours, without any rehearsal, second takes, or anything of that nature.
