Remember when I posted that the long lost Aphex Twin album Caustic Window had surfaced and was going for the steep price of $13,500 on Discogs? And then remember how a Kickstarter came about that got to buy the album and then give supporters a digital copy? Well, that test pressing was then auctioned on eBay and it looks like Minecraft creator Notch won the auction at the oh so reasonable price of $46,300. You know, basically on par with a thrift shop find.
A portion of the auction’s proceeds will go to charity, so there is always that! Head below to stream the album as well as see Notch’s tweet.
So I kinda paid a lot for a double LP from the '90s..
