It's actually quite a common piece...the various "Pops" orchestras from all over the country have it on several discs...you might also try Music Meastro Karaoke...they have the actual track the way Elvis did it...("Sprach" blends through to "That's Alright Mama")...I don't know if it's available on a single disc, all I could locate was a 27-disc Elvis Collection for $249.95...probably a bit spendy for a one-time use... :lol:
He did several different things over the course of the career but he's most famous for Also Sprach Zarathustra (and BTW, go see the Wagner opera that this is from, the name of which I can't remember, but it's an amazing 4 hours) sequed into either C.C. Rider or That's Alright. BTW, that can be found on the Elvis in Vegas CD, which also has "Elvis has left the building" on it.
One of the most recognizable lead in themes was Also Sprach Zarathustra from the soundtrack of 2001: A Space Odyssey (as we children of the 70s would know it). Deodata did that version of the song. Elvis used it on an entrance to his show in Hawaii near the end of his career. The 2001 theme, going into a drum solo and blending into Burning Love. The Elvis impersonators live on this combo. Very exciting
Let me know if you need to know the specific of the album and I will run it down. CC Ryder was another lead in song he used. Better check with your client to be sure.
I used it for a Bride & Groom intro, but I looped the bed. It worked GREAT! Try it. The Bride & Groom can "work" the room, after the introduction, shaking hands and such on their way to the head table.
