In 1968, Middle of the Road was known as Los Caracas. They were very popular the length and breadth of the UK, performing live at Supper Dances, Private Functions and Social Clubs of all types. Their appearances on the TV programme, “Opportunity Knocks” hosted by Hughie Green, boosted their popularity to such an extent that they decided to release an EP entitled, “Viva Los Caracas”. The vinyl disc was available at all the venues where they were performing and acted as a souvenir of their show.
