Aphex Twin's <em>Caustic Window</em> test pressing sells for more than $40,000

$46,300 to be exact.

After the Kickstarter campaign to release Aphex Twin‘s test pressing-only Caustic Window album raised $67,424, the plan was to sell the test pressing on eBay. More than 100 people made bids, with the winner taking it home for $46,300.

If you missed out on this one, the album can be streamed on YouTube. Plus, there are those two other rare Aphex Twin test pressings that recently turned up on eBay.

For more Richard D. James, FACT ran down the 50 best Aphex Twin tracks of all time. There’s also his bizarre interview from 1994’s Britronica showcase.
