Great reading but audio book has problems

I loved Ralph Richardson's reading and found this audiobook inspiring. But beware -- this edition has some problems:
1) There seems to be faint static in the background as if the reading were transferred from a reel-to-reel tape.
2) There are no titles so unless you are very familiar with Coolridge, you don't know which poem you are hearing.
3)The pauses between poems are so short that unless you know the poems already or are following along in a text version, you many not know where one poem ends and another starts.

Do not buy. Total ripoff!!!

This only has a couple poems, they're not in any order, and it doesn't even list or say the titles of any of them. Don't waste your money. Get the entire book recorded for free by a volunteer at librivox, instead. They have a lot of audio texts in the public domain. Whoever created this version for sale should be ashamed.
