Judy Collins' recording of the Wandering Angus poem-set-to-a-melody was entitled "Golden Apples of the Sun," and can be found on the LP of the same name, her second album, which dates all the way back to 1962. It might also be on one of the many "greatest hits" compilations.

I can just about remember the tune, and was able to almost-accurately sing along to myself while reading the above "serious-parody" lyrics.
