After Spacelab9 announced this compilation LP , it was nice to finally get an official set of the Fallout 3 radio songs. Even official digital releases are non-existent for the games. The only exception is this 5 song sampler CD which came as a preorder bonus with 3 radio tracks and packaged to look like a 45.

I’ve been trying to collect the Fallout songs on the original records for quite some time. Some like “Civilization” are fairly easy to find (and regrettably omitted from this disc). Fallout 3 seems fond of using Decca 78s.

Others were never meant to be sold to the public and only issued on 16 inch transcription discs. I was finally able to acqure a player that could play back Bob Crosby’s “Way Back Home”.

The radio instrumentals are also just completely obscure library music and poorly documented.


I find the stereo designation absolutely hilarious though. All of the Fallout licensed recordings here were made before practical stereo was introduced, most even recorded before the invention of the vinyl LP in 1948, coming on mono shellac 78s.

Though it would probably fit in with the early practice of “fake stereo” with plenty of reverb and hard panning when it was officially introduced, but still a novelty.

Arguably the only track that could be accurately described as stereo is “Anything Goes” which has Cole Porter’s 1934 mono vocals and piano and Vince Giordano and his Nighthawks’ 2004 stereo overdubbed instruments.


Some other thoughts:

Other people have noted an excessive amount of surface noise on some of the tracks. Working with 78s over vinyl, I gotten used to a bit of surface noise. Steel phonograph needles did the grooves no favors. Though there are no "master tapes" since many tracks were recorded before the widespread use of magnetic tape; more often than not it was done in one take.

"Easy Living" is interesting. The LP has the "wrong" version.

I have the red Columbia reissue for a bit of color against the rather dour dark colored Decca and Deluxe labels. The original issue was a black and white Brunswick released in 1937 with Teddy Wilson's orchestra. The reissue 78 album was released in 1941. When Columbia Records debuted the vinyl LP in 1948, this was one of the first albums to be issued on the new format. This

However, the back of the Spacelab9 LP reads that the version was originally released in 1947 as a Verve / UMG Recordings release. Every other UMG Recording on the LP was originally a Decca 78. Indeed, there was a black and gold Decca 78 for Billie Holiday in 1947 with Bob Haggart's Orchestra. However,


Billie Holiday starts singing almost immediately.

The original Fallout 3 and 4 end credits list the 1937 version, licensed through Sony BMG/Columbia. It's probably a consequence of all of the licensing being done through a "one stop shop".

Lastly, there's a little quibble with the description of "Jazz Age" tunes and a MCM/Googie/Atomic Age inspired jacket, the periods are about 20 years apart. But it's a small detail.


At $40, the album is a bit pricey and incomplete but keep in mind, 3 of the 10 songs were never issued on vinyl LPs before.

TL;DR Yes, Three Dog. Discs do exist.
