The concert by the Czech rock group Prazsky Vyber, which took place on June 24, 1991 in the Sports Hall in Prague was called Adieu C.A., which translated means "Goodbye Soviet Army". The concert was to celebrate the removal of the Soviet Union Army from the territory of Czechoslovakia. The concert was organized by the vocalist for Prazsky Vyber, Michael Kocab, who at that time was a member of the Czechoslovak Parliament. One of Kocab's duties at the parliament was overseeing the removal of the Soviet troops.

Frank Zappa jammed with the group on one of the songs: "Improvizace v A dur s Frankem Zappou". FZ played a guitar solo on this cut, which also included a "guitar duel" with Prazsky Vyber's guitarist Michal Pavlicek.

FZ's participation in this concert is captured on the Prazsky Vyber's CD titled Adieu CA, which was released in 1992. The concert was also shown on Czechoslovak TV.

Frank was a guest at the concert of the band 'Prazsky Vyber'. The event celebrated the withdrawal of soviet troups from Czechoslovakia. (C.A. = Soviet Army)

The czech guitar player tried to provoke FZ into a guitar duel.

FZ who didn't play for 3 yrs left a little bit angry.
