I first heard Gil in 1991 when I rented a videocassette of an episode of SNL's first season. "Johannesburg" was awesome. I had to special order a best of cd of his from Village Music in Mill Valley. I finally got to see him live at Yoshi's in the Fillmore in 2010. I am so glad I got that opportunity. One of the greats.
