On this day in 1936, the first issue of the pictorial magazine Life 
was published, featuring a cover photo of the Fort Peck Dam’s
spillway by Margaret Bourke-White.

Life actually had its start earlier in the 20th century as a different
kind of magazine: a weekly humor publication, not unlike today’s
The New Yorker in its use of tart cartoons, humorous pieces and
cultural reporting. When the original Life folded during the
Great
Depression
, the influential American publisher Henry Luce
bought the name and re-launched the magazine as a picture-
based periodical on this day in 1936. By this time, Luce had
already
enjoyed great success as the publisher of Time, a
weekly news
magazine.

During the 1970s, Bonnie Lynn Raitt released a series of roots-influenced

after several years of critical acclaim but little commercial success, she had
a major hit with the album Nick of Time. The following two albums, Luck of
the Draw
(1991) and Longing in Their Hearts (1994), were also multimillion
sellers, generating several hit singles, including "
Something to Talk About",
"
Love Sneakin’ Up on You", and the ballad "I Can’t Make You Love Me"
(with
Bruce Hornsby on piano).

Raitt has received 10 Grammy Awards. She is listed as number 50 in
Rolling Stone‘s list of the "100 Greatest Singers of All Time" and
number 89 on the magazine’s list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of
