Mavis Staples performing "Jaguar" on "Late Night with David Letterman"

According to PrinceVault, 19 June 1990 is the first live performance of "Jaguar": http://www.princevault.co...tle=Jaguar .

.

But that is incorrect. Because on 8 August 1989, Mavis Staples performed the track on Late Night with David Letterman: https://www.imdb.com/titl...llcredits/ (there is a VHS rip of this performance on YouTube, which I'm not linking to for obvious reasons). The band accompanying her seem to be the program's own band: https://en.wikipedia.org/...erous_Band . I certainly recognise Paul Shaffer behind the keyboards, and the rest of the musicians seem to be the same as the ones in this video from 1988: https://www.youtube.com/w...mhnxAbPvD8 . I'm not sure about the backing vocalists, but I suppose they're locals hired for the performance and not people in Prince's employ.
