In the same spirit , that the famous Age d'Or Serie, there are some other ones to catch in the serie Golden Hit-Parade. This Serie has been made for both France and Belgium and for more information see the Age d'or thread to watch the difference between a french label and a belgium label. Anyway, let's go with the Golden Hit-Parade Serie, which has numerous reissues with for some of them different catalogue numbers and different shots used for the PS. Yeah I know it's a mess, and even when you know the Serie, you can easily miss one record you think you'd owned, it happens to me at least two times. Beside the serie there's also the latest DECCA singles that were released during the 70's. A nightmare for the french collector that I am, as these singles are incredibly hard to find , in EXC condition, very often, there's some writings on them. I still miss some of them that I used to have in poor condition only. Here's some of these french 70's DECCA singles.
First to last from left to right
DECCA 79090B Satisfaction in WHITE DECCA 79090B Satisfaction in BLACK DECCA 79090 Satisfaction (another shot used for the PS) DECCA 79097 Everybody Needs Somebody To Love
This one is very tuff to get, same picture used for the Promo ANTAR that you could see numerous times on the Bay but with another catalogue number DECCA 333001, and you should know that the reissue with an enlarge shot has the same catalogue number DECCA 79097B and later DECCA 84043 )
DECCA 79103 Lady Jane (Another one with another shot exist, and this one has also a later reissue with a different catalogue number DECCA 84088) DECCA 79603B Satisfaction DECCA 79604 Route 66 (The later reissue got the DECCA 84155 number) DECCA 79605 Carol (The later reissue got the DECCA 84178 number) DECCA 84006 Surprise Surprise DECCA 84049 19th Nervous breakdown my favorite ;)with a stunnin' shot of the STONES on stage at the Olympia in 1967. DECCA 84090B Satisfaction (5th and last reissue) DECCA 84096 Honky Tonk Women DECCA 84143 Susie Q (Very tuff to get) DECCA 86127 Heart of stone (reissue with another catalogue number of the original DECCA 84213) DECCA 84151 Sad Day DECCA 86090 I don't know why DECCA 86509 Out of time (One of the rarest)
Hope I've not been boring I will add the missing ones when I'll get a hand on them (one very soon) , for the others... ;D

no problem ! PS your scan has always larger than mine, that's why I still have to take the time to figure out how to link bigger pictures ...
Sorry folks I use french to answer this one, easier for me :
Choisis un hébergeur d'images, moi c'est Imageshack. Avant de charger , regarde, tu as la possibilité de choisir les dimensions que tu utiliseras, 800X600 etc... Une fois que tu as sélectionné le format voulu, tu cliques sur Direct Link (Copier) et ici tu cliques sur l'icone" Image" pour l' insérer (Coller) Chiant au début, mais après super simple.
Among the french EP's , the rarest for the Collectors is the well known DECCA 461211 reissue of Get Off Of My cloud originally released with the DECCA 457092 Catalogue, another one is very close, good luck to catch it, but far lesser known, it's the reissue of the original Got Live If You Want It DECCA 457081 which has been released with another catalogue number DECCA 461218. Got it since yesterday, thanks Tim
I don't recall to have discussed about this one before. The french reissue of Hot Rocks which has been released to fit with the 1989-1990 World Tour and which has been renamed "Les années STONES". A french only release with a new cover and the only white/grey label in the whole french collection !
New front and rear cover above and french only release
On this new front sleeve the yellow strip on top left means "As seen on TV" and "Europe 2" on Top Right is the name of a famous french radio.
Take care of some variations which are not true variations but that worth to be collected anyway. See below my copy of the same french EP.
Right the original one printed in 03.65 Left a reissue printed in 09.65
If you look carefully the front, you will see a small difference of less than1 cm on the main title, close to the DECCA rectangle. One is lower than the other. Look at the rear now, you will see on the original a small black strip at the bottom (right image once again) which is in fact the following of the front picture used for the front cover. So what happened ? I just think that it's factory mistake , my original EP from 03.65 should be in the last ones to be printed, and probably that when they have to stick it , they didn't even notice that it doesn't fit very well! I'm pretty sure there are some other Worldwide...
Was looking around here if someone had posted a pic of the rare French Have You Seen Your Mother LIVE, but I did not find any label pic. What I did find was a lot of Honestman post being without pictures, yes I know, his account for pics was shot down and all the links was gone. Sad Sad Sad. But it is also sad to notice that Pascal aka Honestman's last post is from March. Hope we have not lost him as he has been one of the major contributors to our forum.
