Nope I agree with you - as such I a beginning to think my explanation is the answer - the only way to confirm would be to get another identical LP and see if it clicks in the same spot or stick with the Goldring and flog the Black 

Do you mean a duplicate of the same LP?

as he put on the Goldring cartridge and there is no noise then it could be tracking angle of the Ortofon but yes to confirm the record is faulty and has a fault deep in the groove that only the Ortofon is finding,  he would need to buy another and see if it clicked in the same place with the Ortofon.  First though he needs to ensure the Ortofon is set up with the correct VTA methinks

Azimuth is more likely the culprit. It's possible the stylus on the Ortofon is skewed, I have seen reports from purchasers on other forums that suggest this can be a thing with the Ortofons.
