The book listed Rags/Doctor Velvet on Apollo 466 asby the Romeos.  Many comps credit Rags to the Romeos and Doctor Velvet to the Nite Riders.  After listening to both songs and both groups, the determinations would be that both songs were done by the Nite Riders.  The Romeos and Nite Riders are distinct from each other.
