    No Philip Glass content whatsoever!

    This survey album of classical hits, for reasons known only to the search engine specialists at Barnes & Noble, comes up among the search results for Philip Glass. Glass is not represented on this album, so far as I can tell. Maybe he is associated with it for having bought it or listened to it sometime.
