I think this is a full listing:

Ma Bea's rock (MCM 900.294 [LP]; shared with Luther Johnson, 1975)
I didn't give a damn if whites bought it!: the Ralph Bass sessions vol. 2 (Red Lightnin' RL 0051 [LP]; shared with Eddy Clearwater)
Chicago blues nights vol. 1 (MCM 900.302 [LP]; 8 tracks on anthology, 1977)
Living Chicago blues vol. 1 (Alligator 7701 [LP/CD], 4 tracks on anthology, c. 1978)
Live in Montreux (Black & Blue 59.530-2 [CD] = Evidence ECD 26002-2 [CD]; bonus tracks on Buddy Guy & Junior Wells CD, 1978)

I'm a jockey (Verve (US) 314 521 586-2 [CD]; c. 1994)

The MCM material might turn up on Storyville CDs as have other MCM recordings, and the Ralph Bass session on Red Lightnin' will probably be re-released on Delmark.

As an accompanist he's found all over the place!

Eddy Clearwater (Fan Club FC 96 = Last Call 422226)
Jimmy Dawkins (Delmark DS-641, Storyville STCD 8035)
Big Joe Duskin (Arhoolie CD 422)
Etta James (Elektra 7559-61347-2)
Casey Jones (Airvay AW 839)
Latimore (Glades 7515)
Little Milton (Malaco MAL 7448, Malaco MAL 7453)
