Michael, did say the BBQ shrimp? This came up...

And http://www.npr.org/sections/thesalt/2015/07/19/423605844/hacking-iconic-new-orleans-barbecue-shrimp-far-from-the-gulf

I'm betting it's the paprika variety. Sweet or smoky? A good paprika can be quite subtle, yet rich.

@Herb.nyc..intersesting connection, as Michael mentioned Big Star earlier...
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 11:35am Michael Shelley:

I'll look into that - but this had NO chunks (like garlic) and did have a few things that seemed like blades of grass!
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 11:41am glenn:

blades of grass is probably tarragon.
  Sat. 7/1/17 11:42am Jordon:

RE the Bbq shrimp. The broth was smooth and smokey. Mouthwatering. Kind of a very dark, earthy brown with a bit of red undertone. Buttery and almost sweet/smokey at first, then a great subtle heat. Yum! (says Michael's wife)
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 11:45am herb.nyc:

re "Tee Ni Nee Ni Noo/Tip on In", see first comment on the chatboard (i googled for song spelling). @Paul, i see Foghat has a song called "let me get close to you", for what it's worth

Just tuned in. Wow!

@Herb.nyc ..was thinking the Skeeter Davis song had a Brill Building flavor..then someone told me it was Goffin/King composition.
