Omaha waits while Nellie Tools Up

Omaha fans are waiting for Omaha material old and new to appear here, but that's going to have to wait.
What I'm waiting for, is for Jim Vance and Jo to give me the keys to the site so that either it can be updated or I can move some material to my site and add links. Due to health reasons, there hasn't been any update on the "Omaha" official site since 2008. So visitors there may not even know that the story was finished, and the full set of Omaha is available from NBM Publications.
When Jim and Jo get better, they'll get back to me, and we'll talk about what to do with the Omaha web presence. As I said before, I do intend to have sketches, pages, and unavailable material up for viewing and eventually, for sale. But there's still a lot of work to do before any of that is possible.
Meantime, the "Cat Dancing with Omaha" yahoo group is still active (although there havent been any posts for a while). Sign up if you're not a member.
In the meantime, the entire Omaha the Cat Dancer Picture Disk is on my site available for listening.

Meanwhile, Nellie and the Drummers, idle for 12 years, are hard at work on their new album, "Backstage Musical."
Between 2004 when I completed two numbers for the new album, and now, I've had to upgrade my computer and all my software. Additionally, the more ambitious project I'm beginning requires better instruments and better equipment, so I invested a little money I didn't previously have, into big band and orchestra instruments and an upgrade for my Digital Audio Workstation. Nellie's voice works just fine the way it is.
Watch the Nellie section of my website for developments, and new tracks as they are finished.
