15. Bonus Question: Bill Frisell. In addition to the albums listed above he has at least a dozen others featuring noncommissioned cover photos. I think this makes him the champ, although admittedly I'm not 100 percent certain. If anyone knows of another musician with more photo covers please let me know. In the meantime why doesn't someone out there write a post on Frisell's albums?
