Wrap image into a spiral

I have seen a post that shows how to wrap a long image into a circle around a picture. Is there a way that I can wrap a long picture into a spiral. This is the picture I am looking at. It's music that I want to wrap around to make a CD style cover.

The first image is my starting point and the second image is what I am trying to create (but with the music from my first image). I hope that all makes sense!

In recent Illustrator versions, you may create an Art brush out of the image, draw a spiral and then apply the brush.

Thank you. The option for Art Brush (and scatter brush) is greyed out. Do you know why that would be?

Scratch that! I hadn't opened the image! *facepalm*

Do you know of a way to draw a good spiral that doesn't allow on my freehand abilities?

You might use the spiral tool, found under the line tool in the default advanced toolbar.
