The New Power Generation posted the following link on Twitter of "Willing and Able" by Prince and the New Power Generation.

It's the wonderful version with horns.

That's from The Diamonds and Pearls Video Collection VHS/DVD. I have always thought this version was highly superior to the album version. I love seeing the filming crew in the video dancing in the background.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

I seem to remember this debuting on network TV in 1992 right after the Super Bowl.

I've always wondered if the vid is playback on an existing recording or a live take video AND audio altogether.

Yes. Tony played guitar on Push, which was the climax of the Diamonds & Pearls tour.

So true. He took it to the Church. So much built up tension that explodes at the end. Perfect Prince example of the sacred and profane.
