You can but if you want the resulting file to have only one header and one
footer then you need to strip the headers and footers from the pieces which
means uncompression and recompression.  

If all we want is to provide the pieces (with all their headers and footers) in
a single package for easy download I'd rather provide users with a simple means
to facilitate download of all the pieces than keep essentially two copies of
the data and therefore use twice the storage.
