"Anthology 3" is a compilation album by The Beatles released in October 1996 by Apple Records as part of "The Beatles Anthology" series. The album includes rarities and alternative tracks from the final two years of the band's career, ranging from the initial sessions for "The Beatles" (also known as "The White Album") to the last sessions for "Let It Be" and "Abbey Road" in later 1969.

Following "Free as a Bird" in "Anthology 1" and "Real Love" in "Anthology 2", a third John Lennon solo demo entitled "Now and Then" was to be reworked by the three surviving members of The Beatles for "Anthology 3". However, it was decided against due to complications and sound quality issues involving Lennon's recording. In its place is "A Beginning," an orchestral instrumental track initially intended for "The White Album".

Similar to the previous "Anthology" albums, the cover image painted by Klaus Voorman features a collage of The Beatles-related imagery designed to appear as a wall of peeling posters and album covers. An updated picture of Voorman can be seen in George Harrison's hair in a segment of the "Revolver" album cover.
