It might be part of French culture to publically be enfant terrible!

HEADS UP!

Thanks to Matthieu, we now know that the copies being sent out in France by Amazon do not contain a download voucher. So these may not contain a download code even though recordstoreday.co.uk still says: "Includes a Download Voucher." on the following page:
https://recordstoreday.co.uk/releases/rsd-2018/u2/
I have not clicked on that link yet . . . . . because I am confused you mentioned Amazon in your post.  I was under the impression that Record Store Day was limited to record labels instructing the vinyl record manufacturers to send specific Record Store Day vinyl records only to record stores . . . . . . and then customers having to physically enter those record stores in order to buy the Record Store Day vinyl record.  If Amazon is involved in France, then I'm confused.

You're right... that's how Record Store Day is supposed to work. My guess is that there was a mix-up at Universal and they accidentally sent some copies to amazon France. Not only is amazon not supposed to sell RSD stuff, they had them in stock and sold them almost two weeks early!!

There is no culture of "Record Store Day" in France like there is elsewhere. They haven't embraced the idea of a specific day where records are limited and certain retailers get preference over another. So its always interesting to watch what happens there we are told.  This year they are showing up on Amazon, and shipping early.  Last year for "Red Hill Mining Town" Universal sold them direct through their website in France. And going back to 2010, Wide Awake in Europe was sold in FNAC stores (an electronics / music store chain similar to a big box USA store)

We've had a couple of people fill in the details above in a couple of locations through the site social media accounts.  So I appreciate that.

It might not get huge participation, but there is absolutely an official RSD in France: http://disquaireday.fr/  So it's strange that Universal is offering copies to amazon there. The pics I've seen on Twitter clearly show "RecordStoreDay.Com" on the outer label of the copies sold by amazon.fr.

I wonder if there's a chance that the RSD copies for official indie stores will include the digital download mentioned on the RSD site? That might be a small (very small) distinguishing factor between the Amazon copies and the RSD copies.

It appears that in France its a more general release, and doesn't involve getting people into stores.

Thank you for the confirmation.   ;)

I think it is because that the French ignore the rules!
Ha ha, that's funny!    ;D

So this pretty much confirms that R&H30 will be released at Christmas as a stop gap.

Just get this to us by December 31 2018.

I wouldn't put money on R&H being released at Christmas myself.

It's the remix being released on the Record Store Day Vinyl on April 21. You'll have to wait two weeks yet for it...
Thank you very much for the quick reply.  I must have missed that bit of info when it was mentioned previously.  I now see it in the March 6 story by Aaron.  Wow, I sure am out of it.

The download voucher info is news to me.  I want to get the Lights of Home [Free Yourself / Beck Remix] so I will need the download voucher because I don't collect vinyl.  I don't think there is a record store here in Jackson.  I will have to look.  If not, I will call the record stores in Denver or maybe even Salt Lake City.  But with only 5,000 copies worldwide, I'm afraid I won't be able to get one.  But if I'm lucky and I get one, I'm only interested in the download voucher.  I don't want the vinyl record.  It should be with someone who wants it.

HEADS UP!
