You might be able to count the number of steps you take on the newly unveiled 5th Generation iPod Nano, but you certainly can't spin records on it.

The retro "feel" and iconic static sound has music lovers flocking to vinyl albums (you know, those REALLY big circle things children of the 70s and early 80s listened to as kids) and the turntables they're played on.

Some record stores, like J&R Music, are even stocking "records" of classic artists like Aerosmith and the Beach Boys, as well as freshly pressed LP versions of Lady Gaga and other current music sensations.
