Estrus Lunch Bucket

Estrus ESBX1 3x7" Box / CD Box, released 1990

Includes the Seaweed track "Bewitched"

Estrus gets in on the fun - they had a few of these vinyl box sets (also released on CD). The Lunch Bucket was the first. It contained three 7"s, featuring 12 bands. The singles had catalogue numbers of ES-76, ES-77, and ES-78, and (as far as I know) were all on translucent black vinyl. I would not be surprised if a color vinyl version existed, as the later Estrus box sets all had color versions, but I have never seen one for the Lunch Bucket. The Seaweed track (on the third 7") was a Beat Happening cover. The boxes were hand-numbered out of 1,500, and came with trading cards for each of the 12 bands within. The box also has a handle stapled to the top. Apparently, there were an additional 125 copies or so that were named instead of numbered.
