Recording and Playback Help, please

I am new to Audacity, using version 2.1.0 and windows 7. I am recording from a turntable and storing files on my desktop. When I go to play the files, the audio file plays all the files from the album at basically the same time. One song will begin, then in about 5 seconds the second then another 5 seconds another and so on. I am sure there is an easy fix for this either in the recording, export or playback process. Any help will be sincerely appreciated.

I’m unsure what you are doing wrong, but these tutorials will probably help: http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/tutorial_copying_tapes_lps_or_minidiscs_to_cd.html
