From 1997 to 2000, Jason & Jonathan Dowling along with Leo's Operation band member Joe Yankovich, Renal Failures/Noise Reduction band member Josh Roberts and many others started a 4-track cassette recording project called "The Tussin Box Set". This one (of about 18 hours of music) is a cover of Prince's "When Doves Cry" recorded in 1999 (about the talk at the beginning of the song: we were taping over a Journey cassette). Though it is not perfect by any means (the music was performed from memory & yes, the lyrics get flubbed, etc), we wanted to post it as a sincere tribute to Prince and his legacy. RIP Luv On Ya!
