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. 2, which was given to audience members at the 2nd concert on July 19, consists of tracks by Daysuke Takaoka, Takuro Okada, Hiroyuki Ura, and Shinjiro Yamaguchi. Okada and Ura appeared in this concert, Takaoka in the 1st concert on July 4, and Yamaguchi in the 4th concert on August 1.
