Recorded by the BBC at the Royal Albert Hall, London. Man & Guitar finds multi-award winner Ian Siegal at his bare-bones best, tearing up an unplugged solo set as part of Bluesfest 2013 at the Royal Albert Hall in London. This is the performer at his most punchy, pugnacious and smash-and-grab exciting. There were no bells, whistles or safety nets just a world-class performer bleeding into some his favourite songs. The BBC s capturing of Siegal brings every drop of atmosphere tumbling through the speakers. It s all been caught in the bottle: the soul-fingered fretwork, the evocative gravel-flecked vocal and the deadpan banter.
