Background and recording

Billy Thorpe, the leader of the Aztecs, renewed the band in late 1968. Guitarist Lobby Loyde joined the band, and they turned to a more bluesy, heavier style. The new band's debut album was recorded in September 1970, and was released at the beginning of the following year.[2]


"The Hoax Is Over" was released in January 1971 by Infinity.[3] All of four tracks of the album also released on the 3-CD compilation in 1994, but "Gangster of Love" and "Mississippi" (renamed to "Born in Mississippi") in a shortened version.[4]
