For sale is a superior example of rare soul 45 "I'm Your Yes Man/Your Love Is All The Help I Need" by Clarence Reid on the Wand label, WND 1121, DJ copy. Matrix 50588-1 + an unusual symbol and an "R" on "Your Love" side, 50589-1 and same unusual symbol and "R" on "I'm Your Yes Man" side (see photos).
Labels VG++ with minimal ringwear. Vinyl rates a visual and play-graded NM. Retains its original Wand promo sleeve.

From the collection of a Washington D.C.-area DJ who ran a radio station from the basement of his home in the mid to late-1960s, and kept all of the promotional records he received from record labels in superb condition in nine filing cabinets away from smoke, moisture, dust etc. Please see my other listings now and in the weeks ahead as I sell off the rest of the records from his remarkable estate.

My grading scale:

STILL SEALED : Jacket imperfections, if any, will be described. Vinyl guaranteed to be in unplayed condition. 

M : I don't use this grade, on the assumption that no record or jacket is truly flawless.

M- : Vinyl appears unplayed, jacket bears no signs of wear. I rarely, if ever, use this grade. 

NM : Like M-, with possible scintilla/whiff of an imperfection

VG++ : May have a couple very minor imperfections. (sleeve scuffs, faint scratches or other superficial marks that have little or no bearing on sound.) Jacket may have a couple very minor flaws.

VG+ : Like VG++, but with a few more light imperfections

VG : Several light imperfections, and possibly one or two more serious ones, such as small feelable scratches. Still plays well.  

VG- : Will display numerous minor imperfections and/or feelable scratches that affect playback quality. Between you and me, you could do better. 

GOOD : What I consider pretty poor... numerous major imperfections. I generally don't sell items in this range unless they are of major significance.
