After the successful Kickstarter campaign to get its contents out to the wider public, the much-ballyhooed Caustic Window record has finally been sold on eBay.
Aphex Twin's long-lost Caustic Window LP test pressing has been sold on eBay.
The record caused quite a stir when it was first posted to eBay—it contained what was purported to be an entire lost album under Richard D James' Caustic Window alias, which he had used to release three EPs in the early '90s (later collected on CD under the name Compilation). A Kickstarter campaign was started to purchase the record in order to equally distribute it to all, which quickly went far beyond its initial goal—they ended up raising $67,424 USD. According to FACT they've gone through with the second half of the deal, selling the record on eBay for $46,300 USD and now set to split the profits between James' label Rephlex, Kickstarter participants and a charity (still unspecified).
