Middle of the Road are a pop group from Scotland who enjoyed great success across Europe in the early 1970s.

They had three major hits in the UK singles chart, all of them bubblegum pop classics: “Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep” (Number 1), “Tweedle Dee Tweedle Dum” (Number 2) and “Soley Soley” (Number 5), all in 1971. But in other European countries, their success continued well into 1972 and 1973, with songs like “Sacramento”, “Samson and Delilah”, “Bottom’s Up” and “The Talk of All the USA”.

Their enigmatic percussionist / lead vocalist was Sally Carr (born Sarah Cecilia Young on 28 March 1945, in Muirhead, Lanarkshire) (ex Part Four, Los Caracas), the rest of the band were, drummer Ken Andrews (born Kenneth Andrew Ballentyne, 28 August 1946, in Bearsden, Glasgow, Strathclyde) (ex Part Four, Los Caracas); guitarist / flutist Ian Campbell-Lewis (born Ian McCreadie, 15 July 1947, in Partick, Glasgow, Strathclyde) (ex Part Four, Los Caracas); bassist / vocalist Eric Campbell-Lewis (born Eric McCreadle, 17 June 1949, in Partick, Glasgow, Strathclyde) (ex Part Four, Los Caracas).
