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.
"The Hoax Is Over" was released in January 1971 by Infinity. 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.
