recording gives one track

just recorded an album of 12 tracks but only shows up as 1 long track of over 45 minutes,any ideas

Audacity doesn’t have automatic track splitting while recording.

You can label the songs manually (or try Analyze > Silence Finder to label the tracks automatically) then File > Export Multiple to export the labelled sections.

This is explained in the Manual: http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/splitting_a_recording_into_separate_tracks.html .
