Bodacious DF

Bodacious DF is a 1973 rock album, the only release by the short-lived band of the same name.

After leaving Jefferson Airplane in 1971, founder Marty Balin produced an album by the band Grootna in 1972. He then formed the band Bodacious DF with Grootna members Vic Smith and Greg Dewey (also from Country Joe & the Fish), as well as Mark Ryan (from Quicksilver Messenger Service) and Charlie Hickox.

The band broke up shortly after the album was released; Balin joined Jefferson Starship in 1975, and frequently performed the Bodacious songs "The Witcher" and "Driving Me Crazy". Hickox and Smith collaborated with him on songs for Jefferson Starship's album Spitfire (1976), and Greg Dewey's brother Nicholas Dewey wrote a song for Earth (1978).
