Need command line app to extract image from mp3

Using Ubuntu (apt based). compiling, etc, not a problem.
Tried packages: mp3info, id3, id3tool, id3v2, etc.
Yes, I googled as well.

id3v2 -l will show
APIC (Attached picture): ()[, 3]: image/jpeg, 85867 bytes

There are GUI tools that will display and extract the image. e.g., easytag, which has little for cli options.

I am looking for an app, or even a process, that will extract the image from within a bash script.

P.S.: my first question. How'd I do? (only for relevant posters, of course)

This is possible with eyeD3. It's the most full-featured cli id3 tool I've used. Friggin' awesome.
