You can call the Kingston Trio's 1962 version mass pop if you want to, but most people found it in the folk music section of where ever they bought records. Their version was the standard known version before the Beach Boys.

I've said it before, thanks to the Kingston Trio for revealing these folk songs to a folk music buying public.
