Flesh And Blood is an unreleased song by Jill Jones recorded in Summer 1989 at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota, for use on the proposed second album by Jill Jones (along with Boom, Boom (Can't U Feel The Beat Of My Heart), My Baby Knows and possibly Am I Without U?).

The song was written and initially recorded by Jill and Chris Bruce and sent to Prince who reworked it. Candy Dulfer provided saxophone, marking her first performance on a new recording (she had added saxophone overdubs to several older tracks in late July and August 1989, also at Paisley Park Studios). A keyboard part from this song was later used on New Power Generation. The album was not completed, however, as Prince and Jill Jones disagreed on the direction of the album, with Jill Jones wanting to sing more mature songs than Prince was providing. The song remains unreleased.
