"If you like southern rock, this is the blues artist for you. This is high octane, hard rockin' blues — play it loud and revel in the thrills. ... When you hear this recording you'll know it's time for Jimmy D. Lane to seize the reins of blues leadership as his father, Jimmy Rogers, did in the 1940s. Eddie Kramer, engineer for Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin, co-produced and engineered this recording. Chris "Whipper" Layton and Tommy Shannon of Double Trouble, and Mike Finnigan, who played organ in the bands of Etta James, Taj Mahal and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, are all to back Jimmy up. ... In 'What Makes People' you'll hear the same shuffle groove from the Double Trouble rhythm section that they laid under Stevie Ray Vaughan on the famous 'Pride and Joy.' ... about the most perfect blues song I've heard yet is 'Stuck in the Middle.' It's beautiful in every possible meaning of the word. ... the sonics of this DSD download are perfect and the music is a pure joy."  — Teresa  Goodwin, Positive Feedback Online, November-December 2013.

"Jimmy D. Lane's guitar playing will knock you over. His control of his guitar, from the most delicate tonal nuances to the flashiest, fastest licks, is almost superhuman. Only the most masterful guitar players can command their instruments this way, and all the practice in the world can't develop it. Jimmy D. Lane is a natural-born guitar monster." - Bob Margolin, guitarist in the Muddy Waters Band for seven years

It's Time could just as well have been titled It's Overdue. It's long been time for one of today's most powerful and expressive musicians to break the chains of relative commercial obscurity. Time to seize the reins of blues leadership, just as his father, Jimmy Rogers, did in the 1940s. Masters Eddie Kramer (engineer for Hendrix, Zeppelin, Woodstock etc.), Chris "Whipper" Layton and Tommy Shannon (of Double Trouble) and Mike Finnigan (organ in the bands of Etta James, Taj Mahal and CSN&Y) are all onboard to give Jimmy the nudge he needs to clear the launching pad. It's Time.

"Just wanted to let you know how much Frank and I are enjoying Jimmy D. Lane's new CD - It's Time. It is truly wonderful! We are looking forward to experiencing the Blues Masters concert in Oct. Take care and thanks so much for such a hauntingly awesome CD. Please convey to him that we are hoping not to wear out the CD we enjoy it so much." - Peggy Ulasek, Maryland

"Lane's certainly got the goods. The guitarist and singer - he plays bass and drums, too, on a pair of tracks - wrote all but one of the disc's 12 songs. And he's got a knack for mixing Hendrix- and Vaughan-influenced contemporary blues with old-school roots learned from his father...what makes It's Time a fun listen is its textural variety...Kramer's production offers a bright, modern sound that still has the warm feel of live performance. He and Lane keep the set tightly focused...For Jimmy D. Lane, now's as good a time as any." - Michael Cote, Blues Revue, February/March 2005
