Ocean of Sound - David Toop (1995)

Wikipedia - "Ocean of Sound is a compilation album compiled and produced by English musician and author David Toop. The two-disc, cross-licensed 'various artists' compilation contains 32 tracks culled from a variety of musical sources, including dub, exotica, free jazz, and field recordings. Toop compiled the recordings to serve as both a historical survey of ambient music and an aural companion to his 1995 book Ocean of Sound: Aether Talk, Ambient Sound and Imaginary Worlds. Ocean of Sound was released in January 1996 by Virgin Records. It was well received by music critics and finished fourth in the voting for The Village Voice‍ '​s annual Pazz & Jop critics poll. The album later went out of print."
