Well, this is even better. It is Empress Valley Supreme Disc's two DVD-A of the show and they are true DVD-A discs too. The AUDIO_TS folder has the 96 kHz/24 bit high quality audio files (.AOB file extension) in it and it isn't just a VIDEO_TS audio files type of DVD-A. Don't worry if this makes no sense to you. Just know this is better! And the photographs used as a slideshow during the concert's audio being listened to are great too.
True DVD-A discs like these can be confusing to many people as to how they are suppose to be burned. Many (if not most) DVD burning programs do not burn these or burn them correctly. And some people wind up buying programs specifically aimed at burning and making these types of DVD-A discs. And even when a program does burn the DVD-A and it seems like all is well, many times it did not actually burn the AUDIO_TS folder to the disc since there are seldom any real audio DVD's made like this and the programs don't bother adding the ability to burn the AUDIO_TS folder or its contents. Do not think that just because you put were able to burn this download to DVD's and and they play that you have it burned right. You need to look at the disc on a PC, check and make sure the AUDIO_TS folder is on the disc, and be sure there are files in that folder adding up to above 3 GB on each disc. If so, then the disc has been burned right by your software. If not, and on DVD 1 as an example, you have only 311 MB worth of files and not 3.9 GB like you should have, you got a lossy burn and not the high quality one you are capable of getting.
I was having the same issues and problems myself as I mentioned in the above paragraph. I couldn't find a Windows program to burn the true DVD-A disc for free either. I put the show aside for a few weeks trying to find a way to do this burn for low-to no cost. That was all until earlier this morning when I thought of an idea I'd had based on working on a similar (but different) problem/project in the past. So, here is what I tried and it worked just as I hoped it would! I created two ISO files (or image files); one for each DVD-A. So instead of having the whole DVD-A structure and files to look at in the original file set I had gotten, you now have just one ISO file for each disc you'll be burning. And it will burn the AUDIO_TS folder as well as the VIDEO_TS folder and files to your discs and you'll have the files for the high quality audio. All you need to do is have a program that will burn the ISO files to disc and there are pleanty of free ones out there. I believe a program called CDBurnerXP, easily located with a Google search, will work fine if you are using a Windows PC.
This is a lot of extra explaining before even getting to the details in this post I know. But I want to be sure anyone not familiar with real and true DVD-A burning knows up front what they may need to do. It's not hard at all either. But if you don't do it right it'll either not work or it will be lossy audio you're listening to.

It's my opinion that the bonus video, incorrectly listed as Nassau Coliseum on the artwork, is pro shot. It has the time code, the person shooting it had more than a home 8mm video camera, the location of the person and their movements were right at the stage, and in one part I believe a photographer is caught in the video standing next to them. This show likely has more footage! And for all I know, the whole concert may have been filmed. Either way, the DVD-A 96/24 audio is superb here and it is one of the best sounding unreleased Zeppelin shows to have surfaced in recent years.
One last comment and note I want to mention is I have reworded this post before posting it. However, the text file I zipped up and started on uploading this morning is the old, pre proofread, and fast first draft I made just to get the 8 GB of files uploading before I left for a while. So if you want to copy and paste this post from the web and add it as your test file, it'll be the updated and fixed version of the information on this show and the recordings.
I know you'll enjoy the show...
