That would almost work for me. I tried many click, crackle and
noise correction methods. I couldn't get any of that in Gnome
Wave Cleaner (GWC) to produce a result where I could tolerate the
fidelity reduction to the music. But, the unwanted audio did
decrease substantially, even at low modification settings. After
a night long of fiddling, I opted to train the noise reduction in
Audacity at the LP lead-out and use that to reduce crackle in the
inter-song track regions. I used Audacity's declick feature, but
only on actual clicks, not on the whole audio file. I'm quite
please with the results of my first LP ripping.

Thanks for the advice and links folks!
