Background[edit]

Old Tunes, as with some of Boards of Canada's other early work, were privately released only to the artists' family and friends. When MP3s of the albums' songs appeared on peer-to-peer file sharing service Soulseek in the early 2000s, there was controversy among fans as to their authenticity given past fraudulent claims of Boards of Canada "rarities" albums. Neither Boards of Canada nor their label acknowledged their validity until someone attempted to sell the tapes on eBay, when a representative for Hexagon Sun explained the private nature of the recordings and the possibility of a compilation release in the future.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7]
