There was untill now only the LP's in this thread but there's obviously much more to add for the french pressings. As I'm a bit lost , I'm startin' to show some of my EP's and later the singles, the juke-box singles and of course some other LP's.
Here's the very first french Ep's with their main variations. I know about 10 variations for each EP's, sometimes more, sometimes less, they all are truly a completist thing as only the back cover date of printing on the sleeve are different.I know a good friend of mine who own all of these variations, but I'd choose to collect only the main ones,with the different labels and some noticeable change on the PS, it's better for my Bank account . ;D Anyway , everyone can choose hopefully what 's worth for his collection.
The first french EP DECCA 457026 with its main variation, the very scarce 1970's reissue.
The second french EP DECCA 457036 with a 1970's reissue. One could clearly see that the DECCA rectangle is larger on the original one.The back cover is different too.
The third french EP DECCA 457039 with once again a 1970's reissue which has also a smaller DECCA rectangle that the original one.

Hey, Cats...dont have many French Records (anymore) used to have hundreds. Didnt see this one here, and I was bored, so here tis. Black Label Between the Buttons. Wasnt sure if orginal, but may be, as I noticed the other French vinyl didnt have grooved labels either.
Here's a reissue, the PS is the same as the one shown by JR, the LABEL of the record is quite different , it is written in english and it shows SACEM instead of BIEM and also FFSS. The original very first PS should have a (very scarce now) white sticker which hide the title of the album.It was sticked on Charlie's coat obviously and it was written in french "STEREO utilisable en MONO" which mean "STEREO playable in MONO", I'd never seen a copy with this sticker, but it should exist.

About the variations , the best one to catch is "Satisfaction". It was the big hit Worldwide and I'm wonderin' if for this one we're not (the frenchies) the #1 of the variations.
