Important guitar note re: Bob Wills Two-Step

Maybe one of the hottest western swing tunes on record, Luke Wills and His Rhythm Busters. Junior Barnard takes one of his best solos they're ALL awesome. But upon careful listening, I'm quite sure I hear Eldon Shamblin's swinging bass runs on Bob Wills Two Steps. Can anyone confirm Eldon was on the session? (I don't think I hear Eldon on High Voltage Gal, for example. My ears (and the discography) say there are 2 to 4 Tiffany Transcription songs that feature both of Wills' great guitarists. Can you imagine seeing that in-person? Wow!
