Let's make no bones about this one, besides being one of the most potent Northern Soul 45's Wand ever released. It is also one of the very rarest 45s on this most collectable of labels.

A ferocious Northern Soul stomper enriched by a Little Sonny style harmonic as the backdrop for Clarence Reid's rasping vocal mingle seamlessly with, as he bemoans how his unmanageable love for his girl, has turned him into a "Yes Man"
The girl-group seem to delight in his weaken situation as they deliver searing choruses of "I'm Your Yes Man" delicious shrill and cutting. Whilst stabbing horns blast their support, this is convincing classic style Northern Soul at it's very best!

But hold on there's more, flip it over and the same Miami gathering of Clarence Reid, Willie Clarke, Johnny Pearsall and revered producer Buddy Killen craft another masterpiece of Florida Soul.. prepare yourself for "Soul-Chill-Out" brilliance as Clarence gives up an on-your-knees performance of despair. The girls this time are more sympathetic with their endorsement of his overture of love.

Buddy Killen, as he did with Joe Tex a 100 times before, brings in the subtle horns, a floating flute, and those ladies fuse to make this recording a Sunday afternoon showstopper.

This is one of the greatest Rare Soul double-siders of all time!! and when you've only seen ONE other copy in the last 20 years it puts it's seriously rare status into true perspective..

And in unbeatable condition my eyes and ears are in awe..
