I'm searching for an old BBC-style Sound Effects recording. Can you help me find it?

Years ago (I'm guessing about 1990 ish) I borrowed a sound effects cassette from a library here in Toronto. It only had 4 or 5 tracks on it. Most of them were natural environment sounds, like wind, rain, waves lapping on a beach, each about 10-15 minutes long. One of the tracks though, according to the sleevenotes, was electronically created, and I am convinced was called 'Icarus with an Oil Can'. It sounded swooshy and windy and ambient. I have a feeling it would have been one of the BBC Sound Effects library cassettes (it was intended as sound effects rather than being new agey listening/relaxation), but I can't find any record of it on the internet.
Can anyone shed any light on this?
