Hey Cornbread,
The Attractions were a New York based group
on the Bell label. "Find Me", was their first
regional hit. Their second single, " New Girl
In The Neighborhood", one of my favorites, was
also a regional released during the summer of
1967, also on Bell. They disbanded in 1970 and
few of the members later formed the group, The
Mark IV, who was discovered by Roy Hammond aka
Roy C. Roy C who own his own label, Alaga records
located in Long Island, signed with Mercury
records in early 1972. He wrote and produced their first hit, " Honey I Still Love You".

Peace,
Mike Boone

According to the Soul Harmony Singles Book the Attracions were "Maurice "Chess" Chestnut lead ,later of Street Corner Symphony and the Vows on VIP,Jones ,Bledsoe ,Smith."
The Deto group are listed seperately with no personel.The MarkIV connection appears to be Jones being Lawrence Jones one of the personel on the Nation WIde single.
Morris Chestnut is I assume he of To darn soulfull fame.
Is this of any help?
