Ocean Of Dreams

Does anyone have a good bit rate of this, or a FLAC they could post me? I've hunted for it, but just coming up with poor rips.

I don't think I've ever actually heard Ocean of Dreams. Is this the one with Steve Jones?

Yeah
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

Very interesting style of playing from Steve. I remember it being nearly like Dave Gilmour.

Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros released 'Rock Art and the X-Ray Style' in 1999. This instrumental "Ocean of Dreams" was recorded with Steve Jones but was dropped from the album's track listing. Proposed as a b-side, it sadly never saw the light of day.

I would say it features Tymon Dogg on electro violin but who knows.

All the versions I've heard have a fault at the 3 min 52 secs mark. Here's a repaired version in Flac. Because I loves ya, aye. ;)
