Catalog 3 is Boards of Canada's earliest known release (1987). The use of the name Catalog 3 could imply the existence of two prior releases (which would be given catalog numbers 1 and 2) on the band's music70 label, although record labels do not always assign catalog numbers sequentially.
Catalog 3 has been described as having "three lengthy tracks of rather uneventful ambient electronica ("Line Two", "Breach Tones", "Visual Drone 12") and two shorter tracks." The same source felt that "their mellow, disjointed electronica was not particularly revolutionary."
It was originally a cassette, but was repressed on CD in 1997.
The album has not been heard by those outside of the band's friends and family.
