glob retains the path and allows you to filter the files. Compare:

>>> import os, glob
>>> os.listdir("alpha")
['one.py', 'two.py', 'one.txt', 'three.py', 'three.txt', 'two.txt']
>>> glob.glob("alpha/*")
['alpha/one.py', 'alpha/two.py', 'alpha/one.txt', 'alpha/three.py', 
'alpha/three.txt', 'alpha/two.txt']
>>> glob.glob("alpha/*.py")
['alpha/one.py', 'alpha/two.py', 'alpha/three.py']

See the documentation for more.
