Chapells - were they a Chicago group?

Herb Kent played this song a lot, and it sounds like a Chicago recording.  Does anyone know if The Chappells were a local, Chicago group?  I lived on Chappel Avenue near 87th St. in South Chicago, during the 1960s.  If so, maybe the group members lived on that street (adding an "L" to the end of the name).  Ray Patterson was their producer.  I seem to remember his name.  Did he work out of The Windy City?  But, I don't recognise Bedford as a Chicago label (Bedford, Massachusetts?), and the label font and label design don't look like late '60s Chicago style.

I knew about this Baltimore group.  They are clearly a group with a male lead, and sound like all members are male.  They don't sound, AT ALL, like The Bedford Chappells, who clearly sound like an all female group.  I really doubt that these 2 groups have anything at all to do with each other.

Thanks!  I see that they ARE the same group, having sung the 2 Double Check cuts.  The 3 ladies dominated the sound on "You're Acting Kind of Strange", so as to sound like an all-female group.  The  2 men's voices are strong on their Double Check cuts.

Used to play YAKOS, about 10 years back, either early doors or later last hour. Always thought Somebody was hard to dance to, even though its a great tune. Sold my orange/ white copy last year.

Heard it and went over to see who it was and then remembered I already had a copy oops.
