Download of complete 30-Days-of-Dead zip file fails


I've tried several times, several ways, to download the complete zip. In every case, the download fails after approx 70 MB; unzip reports the file is not a valid zip archive.

November 2014 30 Days of the Dead d/l link doesn't work

Each day of this promotion I downloaded that day's song with no problems. Then, on the final day, Nov. 30, with "Eyes of the World" as the last song, not only did the d/l link fail for that song -- a "page not found" error -- the overall 650 mb "download all songs" ZIP file returns files that won't open as archives and, when retrieved more than once, show to be of unequal sizes, suggesting there's a corrupt file there. In fact, at the page NONE of the individual links for the songs work any longer.

Can anyone help with this>

Best wishes,
