Quite..!  Brad, it seems like you've learned the hard way an important
lesson that we all learn sooner or later (and most of us learned it the hard
way, too).  When recording (esp. a live performance) you must eliminate as
many problems 'at source' as you possibly can - because it's often a mistake
to think you can eliminate them later.

Another good tip is to always record several takes (because that way, if you
find intermittent problems like this, you have a fighting chance that one of
the other takes will be clean).  If the performance was a concert, you
should have recorded the rehearsal.  'Covering your ass' is standard
practice for pro sound engineers.  Sorry I can't be more positive - but
we've all made mistakes like this in the past.   The important thing is to
learn from them.
