Need help getting old amarok back in Kubuntu 9.04

I upgraded to Kubuntu 9.04 from 8.10 a few days ago, and I am satisfied with the changes.
But, I really don't like how they did Amarok 2. The interfaces is cleaner but the new version shut out so many options that the old one had. My main problem is the management of media devices. They cut off so many things that you need to such as how you could see how much free space it had left and the easier configuration of the folder hierarchy when transfering files. I think that they are headed in the right direction but it still needs work.

In the mean time does anyone know how to get the old one back?
