This record is definitely one that doesn’t turn up very often. An ORIGINAL, white label promo DJ copy of The Velours on ONYX 508 : Romeo b/w What You Do To Me. The deadwax has written on the A-side “ONYX 5008 A 45” and “ONYX 5008 B 45” on the B-side. A-side label has some small writing and some sticker residue. B-side label has some staining around the spindle hole and a small stain near the “X” in ONYX and the “M” in 45 RPM. All of this can be seen in the pictures. The record play grades VG on both sides. There is a VERY slight warp that does NOT affect play at all. Any serious Doo wop collector knows all about this record and the history behind this group. This record books for $750-$1000 and that is for a stock copy! DJ copies are MUCH more rare! I have placed a reasonable reserve on this awesome record. Who knows when another chance will come up to own a true, original copy of this masterpiece? Please check out my other auctions for more RARE doo wop 45s.
NM = A near perfect record in every way. Record shows no obvious signs of wear.
VG+ = Record has been played, but previous owner took good care of it. Record will have light scuffs or light scratches that don't affect one's listening experience. VERY little to no background/surface noise will be heard while the record is playing.
VG = Light to moderate Background/surface noise will be evident upon playing, especially in soft passages and during a song's fade and intro. This background noise will not overpower the music otherwise, however. Groove wear and light scratches (deep enough to affect sound) will be noticeable. Still a nice record.
G/G+ = Significant surface noise upon playing. Scratches and visible groove wear will be evident. Record will play through without skipping or sticking however.
Fair/Poor = I do not ever sell records at this grade, but they would be cracked, severly warped, with skips or sticks, or have obvious signs of HEAVY play. Basically it will serve better as a coaster than a record.
