The Ftarri store/live performance space in Suidobashi, Tokyo, celebrated its 3rd anniversary in August 2015. To mark this occasion, we held six 3rd anniversary concerts in July and August. For each concert we produced a CD-R (each with different music) which was presented as a gift to audience members. Each disc includes recordings by 4 or 5 musicians or groups. Almost all of the tracks are previously unreleased, and many were recorded specifically for these CD-Rs.

Ftarri 3rd Anniversary Vol. 3 was given to audience members at the 3rd concert on July 25. It consists of tracks by Masashi Takashima, Yumiko Yoshimoto, Tomoko Kageyama, and Takashi Masubuchi, all of whom appeared in this concert.
