I understand that there are major legal and logistical impediments to the routine display of photographs of artists.
I think at some point in the future MB will need to find a way to get these images happening.
Pages of text sans photographs of artists seem likely to be judged as unattractive by the market.
Another major benefit of having graphics of label imprints and photographs of artists routinely displayed is that it would reduce creation of duplicate entries and cases of misattribution by editors.
For example, with images it would be less likely that a historical recording of Trinity River Blues would be misattributed to
and more likely that it would be attributed correctly to
