Not what I expected

I enjoy gospel music and thought this would be a good way to get to know the history and artists.
Unfortunately beyond the first couple songs (Amazing Grace & Battle Hymn of the Republic) I didn't know the music so the stories behind them were not that interesting.
If a version of the songs was included at the beginning of each chapter this would have been far more interesting.
