Soul star Peabo Bryson's belongings are to be auctioned off so America's Internal Revenue Service (IRS) can reclaim the $1 million (GBP588,000) he owes in back taxes.

Gold and platinum records, a wardrobe of designer suits and a grand piano will go under the hammer this week (05+06DEC03) in Atlanta, Georgia.

IRS auction specialist KEITH HILAVA says, "I am expecting a good crowd."
