* “Renegade” was originally released with it’s accompanying B-Side, “Sing For The Day”. However, by the time of it’s Top 40 entry, “Sing For The Day” was omitted from official release records. “Sing For The Day” was originally the A-Side back in January of 1979, and hit #41, but was ‘flipped over’ and “Renegade” began it’s own chart climb in March, 1979.

 * EDITOR’S NOTE: The charted 45 single release was only on Columbia Records, and clocked in at 4:49. However, an 11:46 remixed Casablanca version was done for Donna Summer, and was also available on her album, On The Radio: Greatest Hits Volumes 1 & 2, and on a single 12′ disco single.  A longer 8:19 cut of this single mix was only available on Streisand’s album, Wet. Most sources give credit to both labels, Columbia and Casablanca as the primary distributor of the song.
