Format: Paperback
If you are a music and literary lover, this is your book. Sure, we know Elvis copied more Black music than Pat Boone, the Beastie Boys, Vanilla Ice, and The Osmonds combined, but this book takes you to Harlem, the center of Black Culture, so that you can understand the severity of the cultural theft. This book will make you a sophisticated musical genius. Buy it now! Elvis Presley Is Alive and Well and Living in Harlem

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Ike Truman on July 21, 2005
Format: Paperback
This is a fabulous first book by a very good writer and poet. The poems here are well crafted, full of colorful language and are topical for the time in which they are written. There is everything from South Africa, to the lack of black writers in the educational system discussed. It is all done well too. Third World Press hit a home run with Gilmore's first book. And, of course, what an incredible title.

Ike.
