Problem with volume

I’m using Audacity 2.4.2 to digitize LP albums onto a MacBook Air with MacOS 10.15.6 Catalina. Everything is working fine except that the first track on every album has a problem with the volume. It is very difficult to hear the first track. Yet, when I go to any succeeding track, the volume is fine. Can anyone suggest what I’m doing incorrectly or am I missing something? Thank you in advance.

Can you hear the record player while it is recording?
If so, does the first track sound quieter than the other tracks?

Thank you for responding. Yes, I can hear the record player while I am recording and the sound is normal.

If you record the side of the album, and then lift the stylus and place it back at the start so that it records again, is it correct the second time?
