So let me explain what you are about to hear. This was a progressive Bluegrass group named Silverstreak that was formed in 1984. The members consisted of three brothers, Gary Huff (Mandolin, vocals), Tad Huff (Banjo, vocals), Danny Huff (Bass, vocals), and Phil Sexton (Guitar, vocals). We had but one rule. There are no rules. Our approach was we would either write our own material or at least do songs the way we invisioned them.
We went into the studio in 1985 and spent over a year recording a project. They were long working days, and even longer nights. We all cared for the music we were creating. So much so I remember spending an entire recording session on just one word of one song.
Our recording process went like this. We would all play the song at the same time. Most of these tracks were replaced later in the recording process however. These initial tracks were just there as a guide. Sometimes after several of the tracks had been replaced and right before calling it a night we would ask the engineer, Otis Dillon, to make us a reference copy. These copies were not even mixed and still retained some of the mistakes, timing cues, coughs, laughs, cussings, and so on. The point was just to check our execution.
We had worked so long and put all our energy into this recording that when it was finally finished we had to take some time off. The plan was to rest up, get some copies of the finished product, and then start promoting it. Phil actually had some of these copies. Unfortunately he lost his home to a fire and the only copies of the project went with it. Time kept creeping by and we just never again regrouped.
Recently Gary had found one of these rough reference copies. This is what you are about to hear. So just ignore the bad quality, mistakes, rough (non)mixing, etc. I'm just thankful that we have at least this to look back on.
A little side note to this particular song. Otis Lynn, the engineer on this recording, was ribbing us saying he thought we were pretty brave for going off the musical beaten path. We expressed our feelings about our goal, which was to do music we enjoyed listening to instead of what was traditionally accepted. He jokingly said I bet you wouldn't put a bass solo in a slow song. The more we thought about it the better we liked the idea. I totally just ad-libbed the bass part here. It wasn't complicated but I think it worked fairly well.
Phil Sexton is handling the lead vocals on this tune.
Part 1# (THE MISSING KEY THAT UNLOCKS THE BOOK OF DANIEL)**(PT. 1# Of a 5# PT. SERIES, BEGINS WITH DANIEL’S FOUNDATION: ‘THE MAN –THE PROPHET – THE DREAM – THE INTERPRETATION’)**
(TO POSSESS ‘THE RIGHT KEY TO THE RIGHT DOOR’, IS TO POSSESS THE AUTHORITY OVER THAT WHICH THE KEY OPENS! BUT THE KEY IS WORTHLESS WITHOUT KNOWING THE ‘DOOR (JESUS)’ THAT IT UNLOCKS)!
‘AS THE ONLY ‘SEALED BOOK’ STILL LEFT IN THE BIBLE, THE BOOK OF DANIEL STANDS ALONE’
"Daniel, You Must Keep ‘THESE WORDS SECRET AND THE BOOK SEALED’ Until The Time Of The End."
With this declaration, God put aside a great body of prophecy, holding it ‘HIDDEN UNTIL THE LAST DAYS OF THE EARTH’. Therefore, because of the events we find ourselves in these days, the true meaning behind Daniel's words, has remained ‘LOCKED AND SEALED’, awaiting the day of its Unveiling -- a day in which, by all accounts, has seemed already to have begun.
But now, with The Ending of Days, we (Christians), using the ‘RIGHT KEY’ have begun to look through the shadows of this ‘Hidden Prophecy’, within the words of Daniel and are beginning to understands the book. And realize that the ‘Book of Daniel’ was written concerning not only ‘The 1st Coming of Jesus’, but also ‘The Revelation of His 2nd Coming’ before the End The Age.
While in Babylon, Daniel was presented with the entire End Time Prophetically, but instructed to ‘SEAL IT UP’ until the End Time when ‘Knowledge Shall Increase.’
Daniel's Prophecies are without a doubt, all about Jesus. It’s not a Book about Moses, Peter, Paul or John, for the trained eyed wearing ‘The ‘Right Hebraic Glasses’, IT’S ALL ABOUT MESSIAH JESUS! Daniel is not telling us about the hardships of the past; his ‘Vision Is About The Future. He has made this fact crystal clear by describing the coronation of Jesus at the time of the Reckoning when ‘God And All The Angels Of Heaven Have Gathered To Judge The Earth:
"I was watching in the night visions, and behold, One like the Son of Man, Coming with the clouds of Heaven! He came to the Ancient of Days, and they brought Him near before Him. 14 Then to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and His kingdom the one which shall not be destroyed.”
Because Daniel's writing is found in the Old Testament, mistakenly, his words seem to many, to relate to another time in History or is only applied to the Hebrew World, is something commonly preached in western religious circles.
But that thought process is Scripturally and Historically WRONG!
On the contrary, Daniel's words are not by any measure, limited to a Hebrew World View at all! Instead, they describe the ‘1st and 2nd Coming of Jesus The Messiah’:
(Daniel 7:9, 14):
"Thrones were set in place and one of great age took his seat...a court was held and the books were opened. I gazed into the visions of the night, and I saw, ‘Coming On The Clouds Of Heaven, One Like The Son Of Man."
In his vision of the night, Daniel saw Daylight! It was ‘Jesus The Messiah, Returning In Power and Glory’ with all the angels of heaven to take His place as the everlasting king of The New Creation for all Eternity.
This is why we must view Daniel's words in terms of the final fulfillment of Christianity on the earth. Daniel's vision describes the '1st and 2nd Coming' and all the events that lead up to it. Everything that Daniel said relates to the ultimate victory of Christ on earth.
Daniel's is a Sealed Book With A Hidden Key used to Unlock The Mysteries of The Last Days. It was ordained closed by God until the last days had arrived. In keeping with that ordination it has remained tightly closed for almost 2500 years. But now, in our own time, it is beginning to open for the very first time to human understanding.!
