The story of this release of The Caustic Window LP is a strange one. Firstly, the name 'Caustic Window' is a pseudonym of Mr. Richard D. James, AKA Aphex Twin. This album was going to be released on Rephlex in the 90's, but for some apparent reason the album was mothballed. Much later a test pressing of the album made it onto the Discogs website, where a few of the membership of the We Are The Music Makers website started a kickstarter campaign, and raised the money to buy the album. The album was downloaded and copied for the members and the test pressing was sold on for a cool $46,300 on e bay. For all of us humble fans, we have to access Youtube to listen to the album. I think it sounds amazing. But there again, I would say that.
