Following fan-funded purchase of Caustic Window, more unreleased Aphex Twin vinyl surfaces on eBay

More rare Aphex Twin vinyl has surfaced on eBay, just a week after fans who had signed up for a Kickstarter campaign received digital copies of a previously unreleased album, Caustic Window.

A rare test pressing of Caustic Window went on sale earlier this year priced at nearly £8,000. A Kickstarter campaign set up to buy the album raised over £20,000 from fans of the producer. Earlier this week, fans were able to hear the material for the first time.

Now, as Fact reports, two more rare albums have surfaced on eBay. The first is an unplayed copy of a collection of tracks called Melodies From Mars, which was never released. They were originally scheduled for release in 1999 via by Rephlex, the label started by Aphex Twin's Richard D James.

The second, Analogue Bubblebath 5, an LP originally recorded in 1995 which was never formally released, is also up for sale to the highest bidder in an auction which ends next Tuesday (June 24).
