Unless you're doing something like a jazz or folk recording where the live vibe is the whole point. But yes, I agree.
I'm not an expert engineer but I wouldn't mind hearing the tracks as well. Maybe you could zip em up into one file and use yousendit or rapidshare? You can then PM the link to all of us here who responded.
In any case, best of luck man.
