What’s a Great Guitarist Without a Great Bass Player?

Listening to Frozen Alive!, a, ’81 concert by Albert Collins and his band, I just noticed he had a good funky sounding bass player playing along (check out the closing track, "Cold Cuts.") A couple of queries later, I know he’s named Johnny B. Gayden, apparently "the singularly most recorded blues bassist in the world today with over 55 releases to his credit." As my History professor in senior high school used to tell us, I have "gaps in my blanks" (speaking of historical knowledge then, musical culture now.)
