Those 70's remix engineers surely knew what they were doing and of course didn't have the DECODING technology at the time to render their efforts convincingly...
...but that's exactly why they did what they did. The aggressive corner panning on CBS' quad mixes was done to service the limitations of early SQ decoders. It may not have been effective in the '70s, but CBS' adoption of the SQ matrix led to the creation of some of the best surround mixes of all time. The greatest irony of today's discrete formats is that they actually give engineers the freedom to create more conservative surround mixes.

irony for sure, and a freakin' bane to our listening enjoyment here 🤕 and tell me why o' why did Sony feel the need to release the SACD of the live "LOTUS" when so many other titles would have been much more satisfying (especially within the Santana catalog)... :unsure:

N thats why im really drawn to the QUAD mixes, I dont want my surround to be "conservative" i want discrete active immersive mixes!
