Catalog 3 is Boards of Canada's earliest known release. 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.

It was originally a cassette, but was repressed on CD in 1997 [1] [2].

The album has not been heard by those outside of the band's friends and family.

The albums cover contains morse code, which when decodes reads "DECODE MORSE".
