France French 7" discography / The Universal years [2008+]

Universal logo The Rolling Stones - Start Me Up • France discography: The Universal years [2008+] The Rolling Stones - Angie • France discography: The Universal years [2008+] In July 2008, the Rolling Stones signed with Universal Music which would control their whole back catalogue.
From then on, apart from a few exceptions, GZ in Czech Republic would become the main pressing plant for the whole of Europe.
Such provenance would sometimes be discreetly stated by an extra sticker at the back of records sealing, but most often would remain occulted - probably for marketing reasons - and a manufacturing note would only read 'made in the EU'.
Yet a close look at the matrix number system used by the Czech plant would not lie.

Although a real Czech discography could then be argued, the complete list of Czech 7" pressings was necessary.
Records pressed by GZ for worldwide or European distribution can be found at this Czech page, yet records pressed by GZ for an exclusive distribution in a specific country belong to such country's discography. Here are the ones for France.
